    Bindweed or Honeysuckle or some other climbing plant, growing up the stem a year or two ago and constricting the growth of the trunk.

    Probably caused by a Celastrus or maybe an Actinidia.

    I guess you could find out what type/species of climber it was with some time spent investigating in the woods.

    Mods, please move this thread out of the Maple Species Gallery.
