    My Silver Maple tree has bumps all over it and looks like areas are rotting away on the trunk...

    The leaves are green and healthy looking but the bad area looks like it's going to crumble away. Anyone know what this is???

    Without actually seeing what you're trying to describe, it could be a myriad of things.  An injury that is trying to heal or some sort of beetle infestation.  I suggest taking a digital photo and sending it to your local Cooperative Extension office.  They can identify the problem usually just by looking at a photo and they wouldn't charge you for an online diagnosis.

    Why did you plant Silver Maple? There are better trees, please find them.
