Wound on a Large White Pine


Jim added on April 13, 2015 | Answered

We recently moved to a new house. On the property is a large white pine tree that has an old wound, like a lightning strike. The wound is healing, leaving the wood exposed to the elements and a small area of wood rot is evident. Can the rot be stopped and the wound repaired to save the tree?

In this case I would most certainly call in an arborist to correctly determine if the tree is compromised enough to need to be removed.
Many tree wounds can heal and the tree live without issue.
