When to give up on a maple tree?
Our maple tree was planted two years ago and has not yet started to grow leaves this season. Most other trees in the neighborhood have grown leaves.
The trunk is green when you scratch it, as are about half of the branches on the tree. The other half are clearly dead.
Is there a simple way to determine whether the tree will recover?
You can check it for a pulse.... Just hold it by one of the branches, and see if the sap is pulsing through the veins.....
