Acer Palmatum 'Eddisbury'
Can someone please help me identify what may be wrong with my Acer.
Last week it had a bad case of Aphids - I sprayed and this seemed to work. The foliage on one of the branches appeared to have what I thought was a bit of frost/wind damage therefore I have provided a bit of protection with some fleece for the last week.
On removing the fleece today - I noticed one of the other branches seems to be suffering from something. Please see attached pictures.
As you can see everything above this 'whatever' is clearly dying off - just below the damage is another leaf joint - am I able to cut it off to stop the damage travelling further down?
As usual thank you for all your advice in advance!
