I love to get facials and using an exfoliating cream works wonders. It seems Mother Nature likes to get in touch with her feminine side as well and show off her lovely reddish-orange bark as well.
Called exfoliation, the peeling of bark from trees can be occur normally to healthy trees or as a result of stress and cause decline.

When you see peeling, there's no need to do anything to the tree. The bark will come off as the tree is ready. Enjoy the beauty of exfoliation - it does wonders for Mother Nature's complexion.
