Wrap the trunk of young red maples during the winter months with a paper tree wrap to prevent sunscald. Sunscald appears as a dead sunken area on the south or southwestern side of the tree trunk. The damage is caused by the heating and freezing of bark tissue. The wrap will provide the tree with extra insulation to help prevent the damage from occurring. Remove the tree wrap when the tree leafs out again in the spring. Tree Top Maintenance Department can wrap your trees for you, just call us for an estimate.
