    Lack of rain. Not cool temps are causing these leaves to fall.

    trees are going dormant early from the lack of rain here. I have seen some trees that have died out. There is money to be made in replacing shrubs. I'm afraid to do shrub trimming because the extra stress on the plant may put them over the edge.

    Some leaves are falling but not enought to be called fall. I just mulch them up but it is just around the corner.

    I've seen a lot of Sycamores dropping leaves way soon too...gotta be from the lack of rain here in NJ and the rest of the Northeast.

    This is making me nervous...real nervous.
