Odd weather out of season - even the welcomed addtional rain we got - can make the trees behave oddly. That last spurt of growth might have been more than the tree should normally have done.

I'd just keep on it with maybe a lil extra foliar spray for a while. Extra shot of organic fertilizer or some good compost wouldn't hurt it either.

I haven't checked the buds on my Shumard, though I'm not too worried since it is growing strong and steady with never a problem. This year is its first with a few acorns on it, and they're HUGE. Not Burr-oak huge but much bigger than I expected.

Well mine is dark green, thriving, and healthy as the proverbial horse. I got it from Puckett's Nursery in Allen, and they seem to have a reasonable idea of what they're doing as opposed to the big box stores. Nice to know some places really have what it's marked. I got it when it was in a one gallon pot and only about 6 ft tall. Now its around 15 feet and thick, lush, and happy, not far from my Ash and Birch trees.

It's worth noting I HAD an incorrectly marked 'Shumard' there for a year and a half that went yellow, didn't grow and after I studied the overall shape of things decided it was at best a bad hybrid. I removed it and planted this one.

I have had the exact same problem with my Caddo Maple. The second round of growth yellows and wilts away. I am just down the road from you in Waxahachie, so perhaps it is our soils. I am at the same point as you and will replace it this fall.
