What's happened to my tree?!

So I finished my Swedish tree back in March and I've been working really hard to keep it completely gold. Usually I come back in the morning and have to refresh between 1 and 4 skills. I went to bed last night with a completely gold tree but when I logged on this morning I had SEVENTEEN skills that needed to be refreshed, including several of the basic grammar skills, like plurals. I'm all for refreshing these skills to keep them strong, but having them all at once is pretty discouraging. Does anyone know why this might have happened so suddenly?

One possible reason is that Duolingo just changed their algorithm for determining what words need strengthening. The post that announced the change mentioned that initially, you may have numerous additional skills to strengthen but after that they will decay more slowly.
