Q.peeling bark from a maple tree

Zone Maryland | sgude50 added on June 10, 2014 | Answered

I planted an October Glory Maple tree approximately 3 years ago. The tree went through a dry summer the second season. Some of the bark came off of the side of the tree, exposing the inside. I have noticed that side of the tree doesn’t seem to be growing as well as the other side. What do I need to do to repair the tree trunk?

Maple are susceptible to a number of diseases, as in this article: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/maple/maple-tree-bark-disease.htm. It's important to know exactly what is causing the condition; I hope you'll take some bark and soil samples to the Extension Service for analysis.
