My young ginkgo tree has brown leaves. I water daily. Has been very hot in Zone 6 for several weeks at temps. over 100 daily. Leaves are brown, not falling. Is it dying, stressed, etc. ?

If it is in a container, in that kind of heat it needs to be watered twice a day. The soil dries out too quickly otherwise.
If it is in the ground, I would check the roots for damage to see if there is something preventing it from taking up enough water.
