to misquote the old adage: "beware of nurserymen bearing gifts" LOL. that said, think lots of deciduous trees start dropping their leaves "early"---especially if they are under some kind of drought stress. some native alders and willows up here are often losing a few leaves by late august/early Sept. for that matter, often nominally evergreen trees will be losing some leaves throughout the year not just during the fall including eucalyptus, southern magnolia, etc.
sadly, there are no trees that require absolutely no clean-up at any time---except plastic ones (and you probably have to dust them periodically!!!
