I have a sugar maple in my front yard that I'd like to get input on if it's dying, or if it will heal. The trunk is about 5' tall then branches off about 5 times. There was a stump in the middle that was cut out and several of the crooks have open cavities in them. The tree bloomed this spring and looks fine except for the cavities. I have a white sycamore tree near this maple so I don't know if it crowded it out for light.
Would you let the tree to continue to grow or take it down?
