About 3 years ago i planted a 7 gallon Japanese Maple. It was full of
blood red leaves. Later than year many of the leaves turned brown and
rotted? in the middle. Almost looked like a tiny bug was eating the
leaf from the middle toward the outside. (I photos if someone can
Last spring when the leaves were first coming out many limbs did not
have any leaves. I thought it was a fluke so I pruned the "dead"
limbs. The tree did seemingly OK for the rest of the year, but it
still got the leaf "rot" mentioned above.
Now, this spring MANY limbs are seemingly dea and devoid of leaves.
Virtually half the tree. Something has to be wrong.
I know very little about the care for these or other trees. I do know
I have had a couple of trees in this area and all have not done too
well. Maybe a soil problem?
Any, I repeat, Any help would be appreciated.
