Freeman Maple Pruning

This rapidly growing species is prone to develop tight, undesirable included bark unions. The inability for the tree to grow enough reactive tissue inside the union leaves a structural weakness. Co dominant stems should be reduced (if removing them entirely is a poor option) to reduce the potential for failure. This Freeman maple received reduction pruning to reduce just such a stem.
