tree trimming question---Autumn Glory Maple

Hello there- I have trimmed my Maple Tree as it has grown. I know I need to trim some of the smaller branches BUT i want to know if I should remove 2 big branches to help the tree grow. I have attached 2 photos with markings of what I am thinking. I have marked a 3rd branch coming out of the middle that I also think I should remove (it is small). The tree is about 10 years old. I live in North East, Maryland. Thanks in advance.

Oak tree damage

A very large oak tree in our yard has several holes at the base of one side of the trunk. We would like to have an arborist access the situation. Arborists listed online seem to be tree removal experts. We would want to treat it or have it treated. Can you recommend someone who we can contact to help us save the tree? Carole Colavito

My Poinsettia

I bought a RED poinsettia almost 2 1/2 years ago and keep it in a sunny room. The red leaves soon dropped after Christmas of 2015 but, gradually, new leaves started to form, new growth. And recently, many (1/3) of the leaves started turning WHITE (and it's NOT fungus; these are the traditional leaves, only they're white). Any ideas what has happened to my wonderful poinsettia? Normally, I would have thrown it out -- mulch -- two years ago, but it has had a rebirth of sorts..... in a different color! Thanks!!!

Blown up moss and bare spots; what do I do?

We live in a wooded area. Early this week after picking up branches and debris I needed to blow leaves. Not only did I blow the leaves but I blew up the moss layer in several spots. It just came tight up. Now I have a patchey looking backyard. What should I do? It would take a Trojan effort to blow up all the moss. Raking doesn't remove it.I guess the force of the blower is what did it.
