Maple tree with several problems
I have a maple tree (exact species unknown) in my back yard. The bark is falling off, there are insect holes inside, and the leaves margins are dark brown. I think one half of the tree is worse than the other, and the tree even leafs out at different times in the spring. Can it be saved or should I cut my losses (sorry for the pun)? The tree is probably 17 years old and has not looked well for a couple of years.
