Red Leaf Maple Tree

Anonymous added on August 27, 2011 | Answered

Our red leaf maple tree is dying slowly. The bottom branches are dead. We thought it was the tree lichen but they say lichen will not kill a tree. It is so beautiful in the fall, we hate to lose it. Any suggestions?

What other symptoms are you seeing on the tree? Are the leaves yellowing? Are there any unusual things on the tree, like peeling bark, leaf spots, powdery substances? About how old is the tree? Let us know and we can better identify what is hurting the tree.
