should I remove all the leaves from my dessicated tree?
About a week ago we had a stretch here in NYC with temps in high 90s for like a week. I apparently didn't water my garden enough (unfortunately my landlord never installed an external water connection, so I have to water my entire yard carrying buckets of water...!).
Anyway, the leaves on my acer palmatum dissectum have shriveled up and dried out. I've watered it since but clearly it's not going to come back this year. Should I just remove all the dried leaves? I don't suppose it will grow new leaves this year...maples don't do that, right?
