My Beautiful Maple Has No Leaves
It's late April and every tree in the neighborhood has leaves except my gorgeous big maple - not sure which kind. I can take a picture and email you if you need. It must be about at least 30-50 years old and has been healthy as long as we have lived here (10 years). It had some stingy, fingery leaf buds and only about a dozen leaves.
I was going to call an arborist - there is a good one in the area that will try to convince the homeowner to save the tree before taking it down - but I wanted to see if anybody had any ideas.
We had unheard of snow this year - normally we get only about 1' per year cummulatively. We had over 3' in a 24 hour period and then another 1' a day later in February. Maybe this had something to do with it.
We would be heartbroken if this tree was dying.
Please let me know what you think.
