Although it's stilll high summer, it's beginning to look as though Autumn has come early in many parts of the South East, as trees shed leaves and branches.
The early leaf fall is a sign that the trees are under severe stress - and it's happening all over the country, as the heat and lack of rainfall begin to take their toll.
We asked for your photos of trees suffering from the heat. We're afraid it's too to use any more on this morning's programme, which has now finished.
But, as ever, if you do have any pictures, send them direct to the BBC's central inbox:
Drought-stricken trees: how you can help
The Royal Botanic Gardens has special equipment which can aerate the soil around vulnerable trees.
But there are less complicated things you can do for your own garden.
Prioritise: concentrate on the trees which are showing signs of stress, such as brown leaves and falliing branches.
Shallow-rooted trees such as birch, beech maple and horse chestnut are particularly vulnerable.
Mulch: spread a layer bark chippings or loose stones between 4 and 6 inches deep on the soil around your plants. This will act as a blanket to stop the moisture evaporating from the earth. You can use spent compost too - but make sure it's weed free.
Aerate the soil: drought conditions leave the ground compacted. Dig over the soil around your trees with a fork, lifting and turning the earth. The idea is to get pockets of air back into the soil, to create space to store water when it does rain.
