Autumn Blaze Maple Not Blooming
We have 3 Autumn Blaze Maple trees in our backyard, planted 3 years ago. The trunks are about 4-6" in diameter. For the past 2 years, one of them doesn't bloom at all on the top half. The bottom half blooms pretty decently. I think all three of the trees suffered a little trunk damage when the deer rubbed against them the first year they were planted.
What does it mean that only half the tree is blooming? Is it dying? Should I cut off the top? Since it still blooms pretty nicely at the bottom, I hate to give up on it completely.
