Silver Maples Budding 3-16-2013

My silver maple (Acer saccharinum) is budding out. The temps are about 10 degrees lower than it should be…  Ah Illinois. Last year it was 80 degrees!
I also noticed a small about of twig falls forming on a group of branches. These type of galls are generally only an aesthetic problem and not a danger to the tree.
I’ll need to write more on this gall topic soon!
