Aspen Trees With Lost Bark

jascarpi added on February 15, 2014 | Answered

One of the Aspen trees was near our ramada and, as the wind blew, the tree scraped against the ramada. This caused the bark to be removed from one quarter of the tree. What can I do to repair the tree?

I would treat the area with some fungicide to keep out diseases, but other than that, I would leave it alone. The tree will heal over better and faster if the wound is left open to heal itself. As long as the bark is not removed all the way around, the tree can recover fine.
