Can you post more pictures of the old tree - the whole tree, a branch showing how the leaves attach, etc.

Thanks, MRTIM22 - but I suspect you already know you can post innumerable pictures here.

I am not dissuaded; that is still an Acer saccharum.

No, you must take it.

I would not suggest attempting such without the expert assistance of someone with a lot of experience, lest you kill this fine specimen.

Taping scars look like long triangles or canoe shaped
