    Japanese Maples are generally very sensitive to sun exposure, so the brown dry tips of the leaves are likely not due to a fungus or disease, but are instead because of a tree’s version of sunburn. Burnt leaf tips can also be due to over-fertilization. You’ll want to keep your tree sufficiently watered and you do not want to be over-zealous with the fertilizer. You can gently remove the burned leaves from the tree, and within a few weeks new, stronger, more sun-resistant leaves should begin to sprout.
