Sick Maple

tsandJune 5, 2009


Very sad that one of my maple trees is ill. The main branch of the tree started to bud with Spring, but died. The rest of the tree seems to be doing ok.

I am very inexperience with trees so I thought I would post some pictures and ask for some advice on what to do next.

My limited knowledge tells me my options are to trim the dead main branch, cut the tree down and replant. The tree is 3 years planted started at 3 inch at base.

I will post pictures as soon as Photobucket start working properly, thanks for any advice in advance.
