I purchased this Japanese maple April of this year 2021 at Lowe’s garden center in Owasso. It was healthy and beautiful until the last three weeks it is just the leaves are drooping they’re turning crispy brown on the edges all new growth turns out red and then within a couple of days the leaves turn this ugly greenish crispy brown.

This can be common with overwatering, or with a sudden change in environment. Sometimes it happens when putting a tree into nutrient rich soil, then feeding it more. This will ultimately lead to nutrient burn.
