    Red Maple – Acer rubrum likely a cultivar such as ‘October Glory’, ‘Red Sunset’, ‘Brandywine’, or ‘Autumn Radiance’ (ultimate size of 40-50 feet)

    Tree is approximately 20-25 feet tall with a 4-5 inch caliper trunk. Tree shows earlier fall call than nearby Maples in similar situations. Tree has yellow and gray lichen growing on trunk with a large amount of yellow. Main trunk shows severe Gloomy Scale infestation in the past though recent growth looks clear. Tree has poor scaffold branch spacing that is one-sided. Tree is 4 to 5 feet from the driveway as well as close to the property line, water line, and sewer lines. Typical surface root formation showing up outside of mulched area in lawn resulting some root scalping and missing grass areas.

    Tree presents a low danger to people in its current health and size.

    A number of factors lower the value of this tree in the next 5 to 10 years:

    1. Poor scaffold branch spacing – Due to Gloomy Scale infection the main trunk is no longer the dominant leader. Lower branches close together and also on one side of the tree have all grown at approximately the same rate causing the tree to become heavily weighted to one side. Pruning back these limbs to re-establish the central trunk will take several sessions of pruning over a number of years, even assuming good tree health otherwise.
    2. Location – Maple is in a tight location that will increase the risk of problems as the tree grows. Problems include the potential for concrete lifting (depending on how well the soil underneath was compacted) and root entrance into sewer lines (depending on the exact lay of the sewer line to home). Water line issues are unlikely to become a problem. As surface roots grow up, lawn will be lost and roots will be continuously damaged from mowing weakening the tree unless the mulched area is expanded as the tree grows.
    3. Vigor – Maple shows lower vigor from past Gloomy Scale infections. Early fall color and lichen also indicate lower vigor which leaves the tree more susceptible to further stress and disease in the future.

    Recommendation – Remove the Maple tree sooner rather than later. If replacement is necessary, then plant another tree on the other side of the driveway or in the backyard.
