I have quite a large Acer in a large container

Essex, United Kingdom Gb

I have quite a large Acer in a container....I have
just noticed it's leaves seem to be crispy, and shriveling up....There has only been a few so far, on closer inspection i have noticed a white substance on the trunk...Should i be worried about this? I have had my Acer now for about 5 years...
Can anyone, tell me what they think the problem
could be?



Not sure about the white substance on trunk, but the leaves may have suffered some windburn which appears to have been a common problem this year.

Thanks for your comment Ojibway93....I wondered if it was some kind of mildew?
