Does anyone know what might be eating my Japanese Maple? It's just a small tree that I purchased a couple months ago but all of the leaves, including the new ones look like this. Looks like dry spots all over. thank you for any help you can give me on how to stop this.

Have you had any hail in the past month or so?

No, and I was really hoping someone on this forum could help me.

RE: What's eating my Japanese Maple?

Would prefer to see an overall shot of the entire tree to confirm but that looks like the result of uneven watering. JM's will frequently develop random spotting on their foliage that will eventually dry and sometimes fall off if their watering has been uneven. This is most common in containered trees; almost nonexistent to those established in the ground.

Uneven means allowing the soil to dry a bit much between waterings then soaking thoroughly when you do water. Better to keep the soil just consistently moist.
