I've used lemon juice on maple before,

Lemon works like I said ()

But for a different reason. I was debarking a tree that I turned into a stair. As I was mostly knocking it off with a hammer, I could see some bruising under the impact zone. I remembered my mom wetting the bananas with lemon juice in her fruit salad to keep the slices from turning brown, so I tried it, and it worked for that.
I may try it on the high spots where it'll be easy to carve away if it causes other issues.

Thanks for the reminder.
