8 yr. old River Birch split bark in the Y of the branches

Posted by Linda Terry , May 06,2005,15:33       Forum

I have called a Tree service who wants to charge$250 to brace a split bark in my River Birch. He says he has to go down into the tree with this brace to keep it from splitting more. It split from the hurricane winds 8 months ago. Will the split left opened....not rot or kill it if I have the man do this? Will this save my tree?
