At this point, it is better to remove so that the replacement branches can take over. To save the branch, it would have needed to be fixed the moment that it happened. The longer that it remains on there, now, the more of a chance it becomes to get an infection.

Removing will be best, now.

Dear BushDoctor, I have removed the snapped top of the almond tree. The tree is completely bald. Keeping the fingers crossed for it to show signs of life somewhere.
