    Brown Leaves on Sugar Maple

    We planted a 4'-5' sugar maple about 2 months ago. It took quite awhile for the buds to open (it was one of the last planted trees to do so), but has actually put on quite a bit of growth now. It's probably added about 6 inches of new growth since April. What concerns me is the condition of the leaves. Many of them have brown, dead tips/edges or brown dead spots on them. Our newly planted 7' red maple in the front yard isn't having this problem. I really haven't had to water much since I planted because we have had a fair amount of rain and the clay in our soil holds the moisture. We did have about a week stretch when it rained almost every day earlier this spring, and then more recently a stretch of hot weather (5-6 days in a row in the mid-80s). Does this sound like normal transplant shock (given the weather), a watering problem, or some kind of disease? Would it help if I tried to get some images to attach?

    Thanks for the help.

    RE: Brown Leaves on Sugar Maple

    Sounds like maple anthracnose. Red Maples are more resistant, so that may be why only your Sugar Maple is affected.

    Some of the Norway Maples and Sugar Maples in my neighborhood seem to have it.

    If you could post a picture, that would help. Or do a google image search on maple anthracnose and see if it matches your tree's problem.

    RE: Brown Leaves on Sugar Maple

    Here are some pics...

    It's still getting new growth, so that's a good sign. Is there something I can/need to do for the tree?

    Thanks.
