Should we move the new Silver Maple from our yard? pic
I've recently discovered that our Silver Maple, planted approx. 2-3 years, has gall mites. I understand this is primarily cosmetic, but after researching a bit it seems that the Silver Maple itself was not a very good idea to plant in our backyard. It's approx. 15 feet from the house.
I think I know the answer to this question, but I'd appreciate your advice first - should we remove this tree from the backyard? It seems this tree is better suited in an open field. I had considered moving it to the parkway, but that doesn't even seem smart given it's shallow roots.
We also have a Norway planted in the back, but it doesn't seem to pose as much as a problem as the Silver Maple.
Thanks for your advice!
