About four months ago, I planted a Japanese Maple tree (Bloodgood) in my back yard. Recently, I notice that there are white spots on the trunk and the branch of the maple tree. Is this normal? Thanks.

Some maples display discolorations on the bark and others do not. As long as the patches are irregular and are not accompanied by raised areas or sunken areas, what you see is probably normal for your tree.
