Saving a tree
[Return to Topics]

Only have a few large trees around the house. 100 plus years old. One is a soft maple and is split but still alive. Been this way for years. It's rotting in the split area and I'm afraid a good wind might take one or both sides down. I chained them together up high to help hold them together. Should I power wash the rotten crud out and spray it with pruning sealer or tar? Think it would help or hurt? Thanks, Gus

our forestry man recommended and I used a turpintine/lime slurry a few years back to put on a tree about like yours.

It musta worked because the tree is still around and we have some fairly high winds here.

Maybe BrudderLes will come thru and give some worthwhile info on yer tree. He's a perfeshunul tree doctor and pivot man.
