It seems quite early for the leaves to start turning. We moved into this house in November so this is our first end of summer with this type of tree. The leaves are falling all over the place. Any idea what the problem could be? I searched the internet with no luck. TIA

I haven't noticed any turning in my nieghborhood, but it's not terribly early for this to happen. Cottonwoods are native, thus they shed their leaves early to avoid getting broken by an early snowstorm. Trust me, that could happen within the next few weeks.

If the tree is stressed, it could do that as well as drop branches. Stress like drought and/or bug infestation.

I noticed last Fall when we had snow and a very hard freeze in early October that the Cottonwoods were about the only trees that still turned colors and looked decent. They seem well-equipped for the weather here. But no, the Cottonwoods in our neighborhood are very green. Maybe the OP is at a higher altitude?

We're at 6850 elevation and my cottonwood trees are still all green with just an occasional yellow leaf here and there. If the OP's are turning yellow, there has to be another cause like stress.

The trees in my neighborhood still have leaves, like others mentioned, it's probably stress, good luck with the cottonwood's, they are pretty trees.
