Problem with Crimson Queen Japanese maple
I've had this maple for about 10 years. I bought it mature and had it at my prior house that was a zone warmer for about 6 years where it did very well. 4 years ago we successfully transplanted to a new house. It took a year to recover but was looking good the past 2 years. This winter was particularly cold and long. Tree budded mid May, mostly on the very bottom and random spots around the tree. Much of the tree has no leaves. It's heartbreaking to see, but not sure what to do except wait and see. I've posted some pics-- any thoughts or advice on what I can do to help it?
