Treating damage to trees

Open wounds

A car scrapes a horse-chestnut tree whilst parking.
A storm simply breaks large parts of an ancient oak.
Lightning strikes the cherished birch in the garden.
A length of wire from some fencing is left behind and is thus assimilated into a spruce over the years.

In most cases, all of these external impacts of normal everyday life have the same effect: the tree’s bark is injured and as a result can no longer fulfil its protective function to the previous extent. Instead, a wound has opened up through which bacteria, spores and rot-inducing fungi can easily get in and do devastating damage.
The tree does indeed attempt to help itself with the assistance of its own immune system and to close the wound itself. In most cases, however, permanent wound protection can no longer be relied upon.

This is where the first aid from our experts comes in.
