Freeman maple formative 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.
