My Red Oak is dropping individual leaves, not loads, but enough to partially cover the sidewalk & driveway. It seems kind of odd, maybe normal, I just don't recall it doing this in previous years. Curious if anyone else's Red Oak is dropping leaves too. This old tree sure provides alot of shade so I'd hate to lose it.

My first question normally would be concerning water. But I would have thought this year it would be okay even if you'd never turned your sprinklers on.

I know. Maybe it drowned? They're releasing @ the stem end, no sign of insect cuts. The tree that keeps giving leaves! hammer

Mine are dropping leaves like yours. No insect cuts, just clean break like a budding leaf pushed the old one out. I think its because of the substantial rain we’ve had. I notice a lot of new growth on the tips of my oak. It’s 50+ years old.


I approve of this message.

Could also be fallout from the freeze. An article I read (think it was from A&M) said it could take several years for the oaks to completely overcome the stress from the cold weather.

Looking @ mine & see new growth also. Mine's pretty old too, I think it's probably ok.

Are the leaves turning a color before they drop, yellow, or are they brown ? Or are they dropping green leaves?

They were green. The dropping has stopped compared to what was occuring back in June.
