tigers eye dwarf sumac isn't

first, my tigers eye is about 6 feet tall now. I don't know if that's a dwarf or not, and second, it seems to have branches breaking off every day. not just one or two little twigs, but 1-1.5 foot sections with 7 or 8 little branches on it.

Any ideas why this is happening? It didn't happen last year and the tree was the same size.

thanks for your thoughts.

If I remember correctly sumac is a brittle wood tree so if it's planted in a windy location maybe it's the wind or deer like it and can nibble quite a bit that they could be breaking branches as they pass by.
