Winter Burn on Maple Trees

We’ve had a number of clients asking what Winter Burn and/or Anthracnose Fungus that we referenced in our last blog post looks like on Maple Trees. So, we decided to send out a follow-up photo.

Again, be aware that this type of damage will show up on many different species of trees and shrubs. No need to be overly concerned. Just something Mother Nature decided to dish out this year!
