Japanese Maple question
I live in Pittsburgh and noticed that the bark on the trunk of the Japanese Maple in my yard has started to crack and pull away from the trunk. We just moved in and wasn't sure how to take care of this problem. I know some trees have that tape you put around the trunk to protect them, but any suggestions? The tree is about 7 feet tall with about 7 feet circumference, relatively full and quite healthly... I just want to keep it that way!
Any help is greatly appreciated!
