Mystery Spots on my Japanese Maple

Asked August 29, 2020, 5:44 PM EDT

I recently noticed the leaves on our Bloodgood Japanese Maple starting to show these spots and many of the leaves are falling off. Is this caused by a fungal disease? What can I do about helping this tree get healthy again?

Thank you

Thank you for your question, Rob. I appreciate the photo, but the plant may have issues that require both photos of the entire tree, as well as testing of the plant tissue and soil, which we cannot do over the Internet. I suggest you contact your own county Extension service for help: http://cesantaclara.ucanr.edu/Programs/contact/
Good luck!
