    Hey guys I was hoping to get some info on what type of tree this is. I think it is some sort of maple? It was dripping water in the few spots I trimmed and has a gray base with green branches. I just want to properly identify the trees on this property in order to make sure every one is properly cared for and excuse my total ignorance. 20190305_105446.jpg 20190305_105215.jpg 20190305_105149.jpg

    Japanese maple. The “water” that you see is what is referred to as “bleed”, usually after
    pruning. Maples are better left unpruned in the winter months, best to wait until
    leafed out, in your area probably early summer. ?. This mainly applies to live wood, dead
    wood can be thinned at any time.

    Thank you all. After looking up some more info on Japanese maples I am pretty certain that's what it is. Google has been pretty useful but it's incredibly helpful to have real people's help. Thank you again
