Maple does that. You can try dampening the surfaces with water
immediately before running through the planer – sometimes that
helps control tearout as it makes the surface fibers more flexible
or something.

The really committed solution is to put a 5 degree back-bevel on your
planer knives. It’s called double-bevel sharpening.
