Maple Tree Galls

Asked July 11, 2020, 7:21 PM EDT

We've started to see galls on our maple tree leaves, some leaves have holes in them and leaves are dying (end of one branch and random leaves). We really don't want to lose our tree. Our neighbors maple has a serious gall infestation. What could be wrong.

Maple leaf galls have little or no effect upon tree health. Go here to learn about them.

Generally speaking, a few dead leaves and/or small dying branches are nothing to worry about. As a whole, the tree shown in the photo appears to be healthy.
