    Tree bark damage and point of no return

    Tree Surgeons

    How much of the bark around a tree would be damaged for it to be at the point that it is unlikely to be saveable?

    "It’s very hard to give a definitive answer without knowing the species or size of the tree.

    Trees compartmentalise and rather than healing they grow over the wounds.

    Give us an email or a call and we can give you some advice. Our company is called Blantyre Tree Care"

    "Hello, trees are very resilient. The entire circumference of the tree would have to be bare of bark for it to die. Otherwise it should heal itself. If you can, make sure it gets plenty of water after a stressful experience. Kind regards, Lloyd"
