The symptoms you described could be a leaf disease but these usually are not a big problem for the tree and don't need to be sprayed. Try to keep the soil moderately moist but don't keep it soggy wet. I think it will be fine. In early spring fertilize it with lawn fertilizer by applying 1 cup of fertilizer per inch of trunk diameter spreading it evenly beneath the branch spread.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
