October Glory Maple tree 2 years old appears to have developed a disease. The branch is curved downward, all leaves in all branches wilted downward a bit with yellow tips. Any help or thoughts on this ? Thank you, Teresa, Queens NY

This looks like bark splitting. Bark splitting is more common on thin barked trees like maples and cherries. Bark splitting occurs for various reasons but it is almost always environmental; too much water (do you have a sprinkler system?), sunscald in the winter, or frost cracks in the winter. Here is a tip from our website about bark splitting: http://www.viette.com/v.php?pg=136
