deformed leaves


Hi everyone,

My red Japanese maple had normal leaves earlier in the spring, but the new growth always turns out to be malformed. The leaves stay wrinkled and some only have 3 lobes rather than the usual 5. Even their shape this year is completely different from last year. Could this be some fungus or over fertilizing?


Owen Reich:
Not sure about the change in number of lobes.  The malformation could be a number of things from bugs to weather.  Please post a picture or two.

would be nice to see a few pictures of the tree and leaves in question.  It would sure help to potentially identify the problem
