Major side branch split from apricot trunk
Major branch split away from the trunk, revealing a depressed concave hole with crystalline sap. Branch sawed off cleaned out a bit, filled with mud, trunk wrapped in towel. Better to seal (large area)? Will we be able to save it?
An extremely large branch, actually half the tree split off of the trunk. There seems to be crystallized sap inside the depression. Wrapped it in a cloth with some wet soil. Should we expect to lose the tree? Would sealing it be a better remedy? Pretty healthy, but has some aphids and certain small branches die and are removed.
