Help! The leaves on my acers are going brown and dry and look as though they are being eaten by a pest. I sprayed them recently with a bug gun which I hope stops the pest but the leaves are continuing to go dry and brown. I have made sure they are not scorched by sun and are not in a windy position. There is still new growth on them. Any ideas?



Acers leaves do go brown when it is very hot.... even when in shade...I have a few here, some have browning going on at the tips of the leaves...don't worry too much about it, it is just heat in the air. It will recover. :))
