    Sycamores and Cotton Woods are dropping some leaves now but it's the nature of those weed trees. Fall will be on schedule so keep trimming those shrubs 'til the rain comes. Come September, we'll all be mowing like crazy.

    Alot of the smaller trees around here have lost alot if not all of their leaves. It has been a very dry summer.

    My sycamore isnt dropping leaves just yet, but it will. Oh boy! I also feel that due to lack of rain in some area's the smaller trees are very stressed so they are dropping leaves. We will all be into the season of the leaves soon enough, so everybody just get ready.

    Bubble Boy,
    Being from Toronto, I noticed the same thing. Leaves are falling and a lot of the trees seem to be losing colour from their leaves. It must be the dry summer.

    trees respond to lack of water and heat by shedding some of the load.one of my accts today was much like a late fall mowing .
