    DH ran into it with the backhoe . . . it hurt the trunk pretty bad . . . should we wrap the trunk with something or what? We'd like to save it!

    I had a nephew hit two apple trees with my yard tractor real bad. I pushed the bark back down and used white tree pruning paint on it and the open gash. It's now this summer and the trees are doing great.
