With some severe wind this week, we had one of our nice, medium-sized Oak trees (probably about a foot in diameter) split almost in half. One of the larger branches broke right off. I'm especially concerned about the health of the tree now that temperatures have been below freezing several nights this week. Should I be sealing the wounded part of the trunk?

While it would be best to paint any of the tissue exposed by the injury, it sounds like this tree may have a severe structural defect that would need to be addressed in order to insure that the tree is safe. You may can click here to schedule an appointment.
