The bark is definitely different from my other maple trees in my back yard but I am assuming its a maple because it has the “whirlybird” seeds. I looked up Norway maples and it looks like the bark splitting is pretty common on them but not necessarily anything to worry about. Thanks for the help!!
Can anyone recommend an arborist in Southeast Iowa? I have a maple tree in my yard that has developed a long split in the bark that I would like to have someone tell me if its going to be an issue or not.
