On a very frigid March day we took steps to preserve a beautiful old Sugar Maple on Shumway Hill. The tree suffers from moderate rot and has several significant weak branch unions and lateral stems that require support. Because this tree holds historic and sentimental value on the family farm, it was well worth saving! We pruned dead wood, installed 5 static cables for lateral support, and drilled a brace rod in the lower canopy. These measures helped to mitigate risk and preserve the tree for the next generation.
