Japanese red maple trunk bark splitting
Is there a salve or cream that can be applied to the areas affected? Thank you
Hartford County Connecticut
The current advice is to leave wounds be on the trunk. The tree, if healthy, will compartmentalize the injury. That being said, if it is a large crack, the tree may not be sturdy enough to withstand intense winds or heavy snows. There is not any cream or salve that I am aware of that would be placed upon tree wounds and make a difference.
