Hortiscope: Hire professional to trim poplar tree annually

Q: I had a question concerning the growth of red maples. How can I tell if the tree is in shock or is stunted? About six years ago, I planted two red maples in the front yard. One tree is almost five times the size of the other. I am wondering what could be wrong. Both get adequate water, and we have not experienced a drought. I’m wondering if I didn’t remove enough of the root sack or if it is bad soil.
