I set up a thread about my Japanese Maple and my boston Ivy during the Spring Planting forum with Mark and Marjorie. Great advice as both have since bloomed. My question is about my Japanese Maple it doesn't have as many leaves as it did last year. It has leafed out but I think it looks sparse nothing compared to the others that I have seen in my area. Is this normal? The tree was bought last year so it is only 2 years in the ground on the north/east side of my backyard.
I have planted it in front of my air conditioner to try and muffle the sound it is approximately 4-6 feet in front of the air conditioner but I have only recently turned the AC on, and it hasn't lost any leaves since the AC has been turned on so I don't think that, that is the problem
