Q.Peeling Bark On A Hybrid Poplar Tree
This spring the bark on our Hybrid Poplar (not sure of type of Hybrid) tree is peeling. Not sure of the age of the tree. Some of the roots are now above the ground. Is this a sign of a disease (peeling bark) or is this just natural. The age of the tree is over 10 years could be 20 years, in other words not sure of age. Finally, if we trim the tree, will it help or hinder the tree. Thanks Fred Sess, email@example.com
