Did you know that you can damage your maple tree? By trimming yourself they can “bleed!” What is this? When Maples are trimmed or damaged during their dormant season (no leaves on the tree) they will often ‘bleed’ by dripping sap. This is more alarming to watch than it is to the tree. As leaves come on in spring th…e ‘bleeding’ will cease. Even though this sort of bleeding hasn’t been shown to harm Maples, this annoyance is one reason that Maples are often trimmed while they are in ‘full leaf’ so this dripping does not occur!
