Those pix were not taken this Spring so the snow fall or the kind of winter we had this past winter would be irrelevant... that is, unless your corn is ready to pick now...

Another common occurance with maple bark is that with a lot of water the bark can crack and the microbes make a home and live off the moisture flowing through the cambium... who knows what the microbe is,but getting rid of the bark and allowing the healthy bark to grow over it for the future is a good idea...

You did check to see that the rot was not caused by the buried crown ,,, correct???
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
