Our young maple tree is losing bark just as our older one did and we had to take it down. How can we address this?

There are many reasons this can happen to a tree and it is extremely difficult to diagnose without being able to examine the tree. As you have lost one maple, and are losing another, I would say that it is likely a maple specific disease, but beyond this I can only recommend having a tree professional come and examine the tree to see if they could determine the cause.
