Ive got a Dwarf Japanese maple that has its trunk split from the heavy
snowfall from winter. An arborist says it will be 400 dollars to cable
it and put a few screws in it.. It will cost me 150 to buy a
I am not familiar with screws to trees etc... Will this fix the tree?
He says Japanese maple dont have much disease so I shouldnt have any
Any one experiene this before, any advice would be helpful
A lot depends on what you have left to work with. If it can be pulled
together, a simple immediate fix is to drill a hole through the two split
pieces and run allthread with a nut and washer on either side. Leave enough
thread to release the rod a little over the years.
First thing Išd do is purchase a backup.
I would tape the slit together NOW. Two months retape. Repeat.
Wondering what a dwarf Japanese maple is ? Do you mean small weeping
I've got one 16 inches high by about 20 wide which I consider bonsai
that is 40 years old. The issue now is who in my family will care for it
as sooner or latter we have to give them away.
