Japanese maples are very easy to care for with very little problems. Occasionally, a few pests will show up like aphids or scales. These pests can cause leaf drop but not death of the plant. Scorching may be a problem during high temperatures and wind. Keep your tree well watered during dry spells. Pruning is not necessary for these trees. Just plant them and enjoy. There is a wide variety out there.
