Japanese Maple, brown curled leaf tips
I just bought my first home (hooray!), and there is a young (7 ft) Japanese Maple in the front yard. (At least, that's what the old homeowners told me it was.)
I just noticed today that the tips of the lower leaves are brown and starting to curl. Any ideas on what this could be?
From my experience with indoor plants, burnt tips are usually the result of over-fertilization. Could that be the case here? I have no idea when the tree was planted, or how often it was fed.
Any thoughts? Thanks!
