Tree Limb Damage

Anonymous added on March 10, 2011 | Answered

I have a green giant Arborvtae. It's young and only 5-feet tall. Heavy snow has bent the limbs at the main trunk of the tree. They are split right at the trunk, but not broken off. The limbs on these trees are not close together. Their spacings are about 3-5 inches apart from bottom to top of tree. Cutting the branch off would make the tree look very wrong.  I would like some repair advice.

Unfortunately, the plant may be irreparably damaged. But, you can try tying the branches back together in the way they were before and seeing if they will heal back. Sometimes this is successful.
