hi just joined today

i have had my maple about 5 years plus, but this year about 1/4 of the branches are white, its planted in the ground should i cut all the white out it seems to be all in one area or should i wait and see what happens.. i cannot see any signs of insect trouble. thank you x

It sounds like you have dieback. The white branches will be dead - cut them out, and clean your secateurs before cutting into live wood. The rest of the tree should be OK - give it a feed to encourage it to branch more.

A general feed such as MiracleGro or growmore would be fine.
