Question Tree Damage

Hello,
We live down a long gravel road and wanted to post a speed limit sign on a cedar tree....would that damage the tree? The tree is about 60 years old.

Thanks!

Once you pierce the bark of a tree you open a pathway for insects and disease. Even though this is a cedar I would suggest you put a stake in the ground and post the sign on that. You might find this helpful.
