We're having our farm logged. (Select cut, not clear cut) While working one day the loggers got their bulldozer stuck in mud and hooked a cable around a maple tree to pull it out. A tree I did NOT want cut down. The cable has cut deep gashes clear around the tree. I've heard that if the bark of a tree is cut all the way around the tree, the tree will die. Is this true and if so is there any way at all I can save this tree? I'd really love to save it, but if its a lost cause I will have them go ahead and cut it down so I won't have to deal with that myself when it dies. Appreciate any advice.
