User name,
I had a maple die last season from a situation like yours.
Our weather subsequent years back was of drought. During drought, this brings on verticillium wilt.
Frost cracking as I think the problem is leads to hypoxylon cankers.
The reddening or bronzing of leaves is remnant to lack of nutrient uptake and will eventually kill this tree. My tree lived for two more season and died last year after the crown turned reddish purple. The leaves all turned brown and stayed on the stems.
Establishing water, fertilizing, and insect control will prolong life, but if you have hard winters, and hard springs reappearing again..............I wouldn't feel so inclined to think this tree will survive.
