    It stands behind my place and it looks bad. The leaves are droopy. I think the color it changed to is its fall colors. I am wanting to help it but I need to know what it is.

    We call them popcorn trees, it is some type of Chinese Elm, I think. This one should not be turning this early in the year, it is stressed from the drought. These little buggers will take over your yard if you have a place you can't mow regularly.

    OK, it is a Chinese Tallow tree, I knew elm was not right. Very pesky tree.
    Grows fast, good shade, just don't let them get all over.

    You can try putting the hose on trickle and put it at the base of the tree for about half hour, that may rehydrate the roots. I am afraid it looks like it may be beyond help though.
