Small "holes" in almost all the leaves of my Maple tree.

Hi All,

We've recently move to a new home and there is a little piece of land that comes with it.
I'm currently doing a list of the plants that are here and trying to find out which ones need care or are sick.

We have a maple tree and I observed it a lot and he seems sick to me. Almost ALL of it's leaves have many little "holes" in them (See attached pictures).
So I'm wondering what it is .. It's weird that it is on almost every damn leaf of it ...
Also I'm wondering what plants would fit around him and might be helpful for it ...

Thanks a lot for any remarks, ideas or advices ...

Im not sure if this article as any useful info for you or not but I thought the last one on the page sounds like it might be similar. So from my understanding its likely a fungal thing and they say the best you can do is rake up the leaves in the fall and dispose of them. The fungus will stay dormant in the cooler months and then when the nice damp spring comes it starts again. The spores get carried in the wind and passed on to the next tree. Anywho here's a link to one article I thought might be helpfull.
