Is this Japanese Maple worth saving?
We purchased a Japanese Maple (Not sure of variety) last summer after plants were reduced in price because of the late planting time. It was about 6-7 feet tall and seemed to have lost some leaves, but the price was right, so we thought we would try to salvage it. This spring most of the branches are dead with a few leaves on only one branch plus there is new growth coming out lower on the trunk. White circles where leaves are. Is it worth trying to salvage this tree? If so, what do I do?
