spots on maple leaves

Asked May 9, 2015, 10:23 AM EDT

I noticed significant spotting on one of my maples. Also saw a few red dots too. Is this mites and do I need to take any action? Thank you

No need to worry spots somewhat normal. Red"bumps" are caused by mites and do no harm to the tree. In a word: IGNORE.

For the future you have a local office.
