    First off. Thanks for looking. I appreciate the help. I have a customer who has 2 variegated maple trees. Each year they come out of winter really good. Then about the end of July they get brown edges on the leaves. Pretty sure it's drought as these are picky about water and this is planted in all sandy soil. Does have irrigation but I don't factor that into watering the tree. Thanks again for the help.

    Northern WI. We are in a bit of a drought this summer. Been the hottest in the last 10 years.

    At first glance I thought fungus
    Could be a nutrient deficiency
    Try giving it a long soak of water see if that helps

    Everywhere I look online and talking to people I trust I get the drought answer. Fungi was also my first thought but the fungus that attack trees never really look like this on the edges.
