I have an Acer of about five years old in a large pot. It seems to have a sticky substance on some of the leaves and some of the leaves are rippled. Other than that it’s quite healthy. What could these problems be please?
I have a maple tree that we planted about 15 years ago in our yard. Early this spring I found evidence of moles and grubs. I ‘treated’ the area with cayan pepper. Now the tree has unhealthy looking leaves on it— loses leaves in the wind— will it heal itself or should I do something?
I have a red maple tree about a year old. It had buds in Feb. , but they froze. The tree has no leaves on it, but it has new growth at the bottom coming off of the tree roots. Should I cut the large dead tree off or wait and see if it will grow leaves?
My silver maple has anthracnose and I had an arborist drop by to confirm. She had mentioned she could spray with neem oil. While I was out of the house, they sprayed the tree, but I see no signs [visual/odor] that the tree had been sprayed. Should neem oil leave some signs on the leaves, as I smell or see nothing?
I have an 8-year-old maple that is growing beautifully. Unfortunately, I noticed a limb has split but has not broken off. I used rope to support the damaged limb but need a more permanent fix. Would it be acceptable to use large wood screws and screw the limb back together? The limb is about 2-3 inches in diameter and has split down the middle.
