ANY THOUGHTS PLEASE IT LOOKS VERY SAD AND DYING,PLEASE GIVE ME YOUR PROFESSIONAL ADVICE,THIS IS ONE OF YOUR FIRST CLASS TREES.|
|Japanese maple leaves are extremely sensitive to over-exposure to afternoon sunshine. If your tree is getting afternoon sun, try moving it to a more protected spot. The best sites for Japanese maples are those that provide protection from drying winds, and filtered afternoon shade.
Best wishes with your maple!
