my acer has been lovely up until last summer when the branches developed a white scale on them the tree is still o k this year but still more scale on branches. any ideas?



Sounds like one of the scale insects. Nasty critters. All you can do is scrub them off with some Horticultural soft soap. Avoid damaging the bark when you do.
