Why are my maple trees losing their bark?


Answer by  thurston81 (72)

Shedding strips of bark is common with this species. This is part of the maturing process. As long as the trees looks healthy otherwise ther is no need to worry.


Answer by  JJP (360)

Your tree(s) could be suffering from Verticillium wilt. Have the conditions changed in the previous year in your location? Was the tree(s) in previous good condition before this? Where are you located? How old are the trees? These could all be factors in why they could be losing its bark.


Answer by  SallyJ (1010)

Some trees shed bark as part of their natural development. Pieces of older bark are sloughed off, to be replaced by new bark.


Answer by  Diddum (348)

It depends on which kind of maple trees you have. Certain trees (like the silver maple) shed their bark as a normal stage in their growth and development. If the tree seems in good shape, you have probably nothing to worry about.
