What To Do With Trees That Have Peeling Bark
Some trees naturally shed bark depending on the species and there isn’t much you should worry about besides the nuisance of having to clean it all up. In other cases, the shedding of bark could mean something a bit more detrimental is happening to your tree. In situations like that, your tree should be examined thoroughly by a tree care company or an arborist.
Some common trees which shed their bark include:
- Silver maple
- Shagbark hickory
- Scotch pine
Environmental factors can also be a red flag, if you have a different species that is not listed above. Disease or insect infestation could be a large issue.
