Japanese Maple Leaf Did Not Get Leaves

Question From: K. Leslie - WASHINGTON
Q: Hi Nancy, I live in Washington State and have a large Japanese Lace Leaf Maple which has been established in my yard for about 10 years. This year, it did not get any leaves. I am also noticing that large sections appear to be dying off or dead. Is there something I can do to treat this ailment and save my tree?


Kim, If it produced no leaves, I'm afraid all is lost. The tree needs leaves to produce food and cannot live without them. Sorry for your loss. Nancy
