Quite often, due to improper crown formation or a strong hurricane, branches are torn apart. I myself have encountered such a problem and ask for help. Tell me how to help a tree in such a situation? What first aid should be given to the affected tree and how then to restore it to recover?
Better cut off the damaged area before the next branch. Allow to dry, cracks should appear on the cut, in the summer, the formation of new cracks stops in a month. Then, process with oil paint based on drying oil or garden var. If a roll forms after the cut, the cut can not be processed. The tree itself will heal the wound. Under the apple trees, it is good to put props, with a plentiful harvest.
