I can't identify the exact culprit, but I will say that I've had a fair number of young trees defoliate in late summer only to come back happy and healthy the next year

The tree looks thirsty!  If you give it a heavy soaking and the browner leaves fall off while the marginal leaves recover to green, that will be confirmed.
