I don't know a "Mayday" tree. Could it be Mayten?
It looks something like a small weeping willow.
If so, then probably the tree is not getting a chance to
dry out between rains. It likes good drainage. Or has
it been cooler than usual? They drop leaves in a cold
snap. Also it likes full sun. So in general, I would say
that the weather is probably the cause. Not much
you can do about that. They seem to recover pretty well.
