Weeping Cherry trunk damage

Zone Walnutport, PA 18088 I believe it is zone 9 | Anonymous added on April 26, 2018 | Answered

my new weeping cheery tree has a scrape on the trunk should I do something to protect it? Do I need to wrap something around it? Just planted it and don\'t want to up-root it and take it back to the store. Think it will survive?

Most likely this wound will heal on it's own. Just keep an eye on it for pest damage and do not allow suckers to grow from it, simply snip them off if they start. Dressing or covering tree wounds can be more harmful in the long run than the wound itself. This article may help:
