Japanese maple this year not doing well


In 2012, we had may type warmth in march that was followed up with hard freezes in April. At the time, it looked like most of the maple leaves were burnt and they didn't bloom very well. This year, we had a much more stable warming phase and where the maple bloomed it looks great. But look at how big the dead branch section is :( the sticks appear to dead and dry. I'm not sure if I should prune them off or

    I'll leave the tree alone this year to see what happens. If it does this again next year, I may have to prune it off.

    Even more of the Maple Tree died this year. I think it's time we cut the whole thing down and put in a brand new one. It sucks because i really liked the shape of this tree.
