We have planted an Acer Palmatum in our garden, which is doing quite well, except we have just noticed that the bark is coming off at the bottom of the tree and is currently covered with wood lice. We know the wood lice will not harm the tree but are wondering if the tree is weak or diseased.
Also sometime in early Spring, we noticed some sticky white clumps on the trunk , which could have either been insects, or a type of mildew.
On plant Oh, I didn't realise that my original photo was replaced with the other photos.
