Setting up my first millipede enclosure for an ivory millipede. I know oak is safe and maple wood is safe but are maple leaves still okay?

Yes! Most deciduous tree leaves are okay for millipedes :)

As @DaganH said, pretty much all deciduous trees are perfectly acceptable for millipedes and other detrivorous creatures. The only trees you should be careful with are evergreens.

Thanks,

Maple leaves will work, be sure to boil them to get rid of any nasty hitchhikers though
