Q.Removing Ivy

Zone SN12 6AY | emmjayaitch1485 added on October 1, 2022 | Answered

I’ve just removed heavy ivy infestation from a Russian Olive tree (Elaeagnus Angustifolia) and the bark looks a bit flaky. Is this a problem and do I need to do anything?

Unfortunately, your photos did not come through. Usually, though, a little bark damage will not harm the tree. Just care for it as it should be, and it should fare just fine.
