Hi All

I have a problem with acer in my Irish garden. Some leaves dried out. Also some branches looks like dead. 
Any idea How to treat it ?

    You may want to show a shot of the overall tree, but this looks very healthy to me. Perfection is for photoshoots and a little bit of dieback is expected on all acers. Just safely cut off the dead wood and clean up any leaves that offend you.

    Agree with @amancalledgeorge. The only thing to be wary of is cutting back into healthy growth at this time of year, but you can certainly tidy up any dead bits.
    Many people are experiencing a few problems with Acers this spring. Largely weather related.
    Is it in the ground or a pot?

  • Thank you so much ! Acer is in the ground. I cut dead branches and leaves and looks better ! Was affraid coz its planted next to roses which were affected by leaf spot.

    The rose problems won't affect your Acer  :)
