Young Silver Maple Bark


Unless your silver maple (Acer saccharinum) is young or recently injured, don't be worried about its peeling bark. Mature silver maples naturally shed their bark, a process many people find attractive. While shedding is a natural process for a healthy silver maple, injuries can cause splitting and premature peeling of bark. Keeping your silver maple healthy and protected helps ensure any shedding bark merely adds to your tree's ornamental appeal.
