Bark Repair


It is important to repair damaged
bark on a tree to prevent tree
disease, rot and insect infestation.

To repair the damaged area,
remove all the loose or rotted
material.

Use a sharp wood chisel and gently
lift away the loose material,
do not cut into the healthy alive
wood.

Use a wire brush to remove the
fine loose material, finish up
with a straw brush or broom.




Apply the asphalt tree wound
dressing thinly and evenly.
Work the paste in with a putty
knife, or narrow flat stick.

Let it dry a couple days and see
how much the paste shrinks,
if necessary apply a second coat.

Never use a regular spray paint to
cover a tree wound, as this may
kill the tree.




After repair


Tip


Pound a couple fertilizer sticks
into the ground around the tree out
from the trunk, as far as the
branches reach out. This will
strengthen, and help the tree
to survive.
