Japanese Maple lost shade
Hello, we have a Green Mist Japanese Maple that is well established (15 years). This year the leaves have almost all turned brown. I suspect this is because it's primary source of afternoon shade (a large white oak) died and was removed last fall. Is it possible, if i set up some large umbrellas for shade to save the tree? There are other trees that will provide shade if I can get it through this year. Thanks for your help.
