Poor little maple

They are redoing the storm sewers in my neighborhhod. At first they told me my baby maple would be safe (so I didn't move it). Then it was under the giant backdirt pile. Sniffle...

They got me a new maple which is much bigger. There is something wrong with it. It is just the sort of plant they tell you not to choose. Now they have put it in my garden and I feel a maternal responsibility towards it. Most of the leaves are like this. How can I help it.

That's how plants look when transplanted in the summer.

It could also be damage in transport. Too much wind in the back of the truck. The damage is temporary and only cosmetic. It should be just fine.

RE: Poor little maple

Agree with Botann. The damage looks temporary.


RE: Poor little maple

Thanks guys. It has cheered up considerably. I have been babying it. I'm glad it doesn't have some pest I would have been unwilling to kill anyway.

Late July would not have been my choice for tree planting. My yard is just a pawn of the county.
