Should I be concerned about what's happening to tree? - Knowledgebase Question

Our Japanese Snowbell is about 17 feet and has always been healthy and beautiful. This summer we have been having intense heat. A few weeks ago, it actually reached about 107 degrees in our area. The last few weeks in August the leaves started turning yellow with brown spots and falling to ground. I water the tree when in nineties and up every day, so the tree shouldn't have any water issues, unless maybe I'm watering too much? Any advice?

Trees will naturally shed their leaves when they are suffering from any stress, e.g. excess heat, over/underwatering. It's their way of coping with extreme conditions. Hopefully your Japanese Snowbell will recover and be fine next year. Feed it in Spring with a 7:7:7 slow release fertiliser to help it get back 'on it's feet'
