ETA: I'm leaning towards red maple.
There are three of these trees in my backyard. They are beautiful. I want them to survive. They are deciduous. I'm guessing they are maple. Right now, they stand at least 40-50' tall.
What are they? I'm in love with them.I love most trees. Willows and dogwoods are two of my favorite. And these trees. I can't describe what I feel when I stand below them, looking up into their gently waving branches. I'm afraid they are not doing well. I had them trimmed and there were a lot of large, dead branches.
Anyway, tell me what they are!
