Big storms and tornadoes up here in Missouri lately. My peach tree took a hit - about a 2-2.5" caliber limb is split on the diagonal a good 9-12" and goes more than half way thru the limb. CAN IT BE SAVED via binding it back together and Tree Truck Goop? Or just remove it? Man, that would be like cutting off an arm! Oy-vey! Thanks for all help and advise!

I'm afraid the best approach is to remove severely damaged limbs, apply the Sick Tree Treatment and and help the tree grow and fill out again. Patched limbs that have been split rarely is ever heal. I would sstrongly recommend adding the new Thrive bacteria/mycorrhizae product to the Garrett Juice to use as a drench.
