I have a beautiful Japanese maple tree that has been a great delight to see change colors with the seasons. This year however the tree has been attacked by pests (as you can see from the picture) which we've recently identified: deers. The buggers have nipped its young leafs leaving nothing from reach.
I know how to address the deer issue but what of the maple tree?... Will new leaves grow to replace those eaten or do I need to prune the branches to where the leaves are? Many of the tips are grey... does that mean they're dead and should be cut?
Any feedback would be much appreciated, thank you.
