Dwarf Japanese Maple Tree

Anonymous added on May 21, 2011 | Answered

Our 2nd year dwarf Japanese Maple tree has done really well, but this year, when we returned home from vacation in early May, we noticed that a number of leaves look almost burned. A friend said there was a bad frost when we were gone. Could this have done that and should we just remove the bad leaves, or is there more we can do?

Yes, a frost would have damaged any new leaves on the plant. It takes them a little bit to build up a weather tolerance and if a frost happens before they do, it will kill the leaves. Remove just the leaves and there is a good chance the branch will regrow them.
