Q.I Have A Tri-color Beech That Develops Solid Color Leaves In Some Areas – What Can I Do To Correct This?

Zone 45177 | mary e harris added on April 13, 2020 | Answered

This tree was shaded by a large ash tree that was killed by emerald ash borers. On the SW side there were also tall evergreen trees in the neighbors’ yard that have been taken down. There is nothing to be done to retire the shade unless I float a shade screen from sky hooks so I will evidently need to accept the fact the leaves tend to brown. Is there something nutritionally that can be done to control or, preferably stop, some branches that grow solid color leaves from so doing???? I do not have a good picture that shows this.

This is a common issue. There is no harm to your tree, but this is normal behavior in the sun. Summer will be the harshest time of year for your tree, but it will not hurt it one bit! It will just not look as pleasant without some shade.
