Weeping Cherry Bark Damage


Anonymous added on December 9, 2011 | Answered

Last summer I found a worm in my standard weeping cherry. It had eaten through a section of the bark and possibly deeper. I removed it and cleaned the area with metho and rinsed with water. This spring new growth has come but considerably less than the unaffected side. There is still a large chunk out of the tree branch. Should I be attempting to cover or repair this in some way?

We recommend not sealing the wound because this can increase the chance of disease being trapped in the wound. Sealing will not kill the tree, just increase the chances of the tree getting sick. Chances are the tree will be fine but just keep a close eye on it just to make sure you catch any possible problems early.
