Leaves turning yellow already?
Our very large, very old (presumeably) Tulip tree is shedding leaves, enough that they have to be swept up -- NOW, in early August. I have no experience with Tulip trees at all and find this very disconcerting. Is it sick?
Thanks for your help!
P.S. The tree does have a load of English Ivy vines growing straight up (not encircling.) Opinions seem all over the map on whether vines harm trees. Thalassa Cruso, my gardening guru, says this view has been "discredited" and I found a forestry book that said the same thing, but most people on this site seem to think they are harmful. Hedging our bets, we have cut all the vines so they will die.
