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 and
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.

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 help strengthen,
and help the tree to
survive.
