I have an Acer tree (dont know which kind) but it has a red acer and a green acer grafted onto the same central stem, it is around ten years old and the green acer is around sex feet tall the red acer is a small offshoot on the bottom of the plant.
The red acer is a-ok butg I am very worried about the green part. It has two branches which have come out in full leaf, but several of the larger branches are black and mottled, like a silver birch, not green and bamboo like. There are buds, but they do not seem to be unfurling, I have kept a close eye on it this past fortnight. Its a beautiful tree and I dont want to have to remove two thirds of it! Only around two main branches have produced leaves this far - should I wait longer?
