Are tree wound dressing products a good idea?
A friend had a tree taken out and the gorillas managed to damage the bark on an adjacent tree. Hit it with the stump grinder or some such. So there is a chunk of bark missing from the trunk. He says they are probably going to want to put some kind of wound dressing on it, and is wondering if that's a good idea. Dad always used the tarry stuff, but I too have heard in recent years that it may not really help.
I don't know the size or species but I gather it's deciduous and not a sapling or a monster.
I suggested he ask them what they are going to use and how they know it's a good idea.
