In Reply to: Scrape in weeping cherry tree-first aid needed! posted by Mary Ann on June 25, 2003 at 11:22:50:
: Hi All! My weeping cherry tree has a scrape.It seems like it is getting larger but my hubby doesn't think so.Still,I am concerned.It is a young tree which we wrapped the first year at the bottom.When the winter finally ended,we checked it out and the wrap was sticky from the scrape or from the tree growing and the wrap cutting into the bark.What can I do.....I certainly don't want to loose it now that it has a good start.It was just beautiful this year despite the scrape.Please help.Thanks
Use a pruning sealant to seal and protect the wound. They come in little tin cans and you can find them at a garden store.
