I'll snap some photos to contribute. And I will keep a lookout for maples and other trees in the surrounding neighborhood as well, but as far as I know so far, it's just the one street.

Ithink there may be a factor or bit of data, missing here,,
just a reminder,
#ushima is still spewing radiation,,,, for the PAST ^-or is that & months, now,,
might have a wee bit of an effect.
u know ,,the trees will probably survive,,
move that forward.

This is a credible explanation
Spraying trees with toxic water!

I have a Maple in my front garden - it started dropping leaves in May. The maple is about 18 years old and positioned NE. Concerned I did some checking and concluded that it was experiencing stress through lack of water. We had one of the driest April's on record.
It then regained alot of growth only to start dropping again in July. I tend to think heat being the issue this time.
I've come to the conclusion that the Maple is one of the most sensitive of trees and mine certainly isn't adjusting well to the contrariness of the weather.
BTW - I'm in SW Britain.

I don't have to worry about this anymore. I live on the East Coast and yesterdays storm pretty much took down all the branches, leaves, 300 year old Oaks and Maples and 100 foot pines

whilst at mainz Wine festival , chilling out watching a rather funky german Band , i noticed the conker tree above me was looking a little palid, ripe and kind of spotty , see pic :
weird to find the two for one deal over there too , but the conker trees in England didn't have the spots , although they were just as brown.

i was reading in another thread the other day (sorry cant find the story or id post a link) anyways the topic was similar to this one and the op was suggesting the possibility that we are being smashed with cosmic dust as we are entering some sort of dust cloud ....another posibility

It's the drought here in Texas. We were driving to a park today to do some volunteer work and I noticed along the way how many trees have lost their leaves or may be already dead. Some species are doing well, but hawthorns and hackberries and some mullberries and dogwoods and non-native trees are in horrible shape. I think this area will be very vulnerable to strong storms.
Well, I spent three weeks following that Fukushima story doggedly... then in the end I found out three things...
1) Except for a handful of people and those that live in the area... NO ONE CARES...
2) We are still here... 1000's of nuke tests (especially near my home town) medical radiation, space radiation, CME's, cell tower radiation, microwave radiation... etc etc.. and we are STILL HERE.. and world population is increasing exponentially
3) Radiation is good for you
