Q.4 Inch Burl Fell Off Copper Beech Tree. Should I Seal Area Expose On Tree? Can Rubber Seal Be Used?

Zone 48638-6234 | susanews added on August 22, 2020 | Answered

Just found the burl on ground yesterday. It is round and about 4 inches in diameter. There is an obvious uncovered space in bark where it was and wondering if that space should be sealed and if so with what.

If you do seal the area, make sure to use something that is designed for use as a plant seal.

This should be, largely, unnecessary. As long as the tree isn't weeping, badly, from these spots the wound should not be significant.
