Question: The big snow split our old weeping Japanese maple (3-feet by 4-feet wide). The trunk cracked apart vertically about 2 inches wide and way down the middle. Should we tie it loosely around the stem so that it will not split any more? Should we allow the wound to heal by itself without any spray or dressing? Structurally, it does not seem that the split will make any difference. Answer: The inner trunk wound cannot compartmentalize (heal), but the cambium layer just below the bark will "heal."

My Crimson King Norway maples are slowly dying, one by one. I see trunk cracks but can't see any disease or insects. How can I save the rest? Norway maples in general are notorious for strangling themselves to death. The roots often encircle and crisscross over the base of the trunk, cutting off nutrients and water from the root system. Death can take decades but often happens just when trees reach a pleasing size and shape. A dead giveaway is when there is no natural flare on a side of the trunk base; instead, the trunk is flat, going into the soil.

The small wooden trunk is covered with red leather, painted with an ocher floral embroidery and studded with brass nails - and it couldn't have announced its owner's intention more clearly. The 19-year-old Baltimore beauty who packed the trunk with her books and with a black lace mantilla wasn't planning to merely travel between two continents. She was determined to conquer them.

Walking along the Appalachian Trail one fall afternoon, I spied something sunning itself about 100 yards ahead. "Dog!" I hollered to my companions, pointing at the dark fuzzy lump turning slowly in our direction. "Too large for a dog," half of my brain sputtered while the other half raced through my animal flash cards. It was, of course, a black bear. And I was, of course, red-faced. An encounter with a bruin isn't commonplace in Maryland. State biologists put the black bear population at around 327, with fewer than one-third of them living east of Cumberland.
