  • Broken Tree :( any tree experts in around?
  • That’s what my mum did and it healed itself nicely – although a little disfigured at the join!

    I’d just leaf it alone.

    Have you asked the council to replace it?

    There’s a small chance it’d scar over if you support it but there’s also a chance that dormant buds below the wound will become active (same as pruning), though any fresh growth now would obviously suffer in the winter.

    The risk is that a messy break could let disease etc in and cause problems.

    One of the saplings/young trees on our street broke in the wind yesterday. There’s just a it’s barely attached to the trunk.

    Is there a way of saving it?

    Could we use a couple of splints and a few rolls of self amalgamating tape to form a bandage then remove it next season?

    Will this work?

    We’d like to save it as it took a lot of hassle getting the council to put trees in the first place and they do make our street look much nicer.

    Thanks in advance
