Decay Risk for Sugar Maple Borer Scars
Borer injuries occur frequently throughout the range of sugar maple and are associated with discoloration and decay. A horizontal bark scar results from the borer's first-year gallery. A vertical scar is formed when the larva extends the injury during the second year. Decay was found in 19 percent of all samples with horizontal scars and in 73 percent of samples with vertical scars.
