Acer bare branches

my Acer has started to show bare patches on the branches. It has a good soak at least once a week and a comfy feed every month. It’s around 7 years old and has been repotted several times

    Do you have a photo Steph?
    A bit more info would help us come up with some ideas.

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    It's probably dry. They need huge amounts of water when in pots - even in an ordinary summer. They'll shed leaves to help avoid too much water loss, and preserve themselves.
    Or did you mean bare sections of the actual branch - the bark?
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
