Sorry for the delayed reply. The symptoms you described on the maple tree are a sign of stress due to heat, lack of moisture or possibly fertilizer burn from overapplication. The brown edges won't go away but the new foliage will develop normally if you can provide moist but not soggy soil conditions. Give it a bright shade with perhaps some dappled sun and in the cooler temps the leaves should develop better color.
Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
