I am assuming its a young tree. Young trees tend to be green untill they become established. Its perfectly normal. Most of the yound thread leafs i plant are all green and usually turn the following year. Each year that it ages brings out more red. Thats been my experience. Its a hardy variety and have never lost one.

What is the soil type and PH? How many hours a day is it in full sun? Morning sun or afternoon sun? Most laceleafs will begin to turn more green if they are in the shade for longer periods of time. Longer durations of gentle morning sun will bring out the red color in them much better- This is assuming you have a red variety? Have you stuck you hands down in the soil around the base of the tree. Is it very muddy or is it dry? A tree that is constantly in the mud will exhibit the same signs of stress that a tree with too little water will show. The roots need air just as much as they need water.
