    Can anyone help me?! I have a red maple planted about two years ago. Every spring beautiful green leafs sprout. But in summer die and turn brown and fall off. I water and the tree trunks looks like its in good health no pest. I have tried asking everywhere now I'm here for some hope. I live in Houston Tx. Please help me find the problem and can I save this

    Too hot for it. Although Red Maple is native in the Houston area, most of the plants sold by nurseries are cultivars selected from much cooler parts of its range, and they can't cope with your southern heat.

    Can I move it in the shade or can it adapt to the area

    Shade would be better. But it won't adapt to higher temperatures.
