    You can... Trees are able to adapt pretty well though. depending on the wound... it can heal itself without intervention. If the injury isn't a fully snapped branch it can be healed typically without issue. a snapped branch can be repaired by wrapping if it is still partially attached... If it is fully severed, you should treat it like a graft.
