Winter Plant Damage in a New Milford Landscape

With the amount of snow we’ve had this past winter, Connecticut landscapes have really taken a beating.  In the last 3 weeks I’ve seen more damage from this winter than I have in the previous 10 winters combined.  Here is a picture of a beautiful Japanese Cutleaf Maple not only with a major crack in the central leader but also trunk damage caused by rodents.  Neither situation is good.  Let’s hope this mature specimen tree makes it to see another landscape season.
