had some sapplings damaged

long story short, my parents had someone come take out some trees, guy flanted many of our sapplings including one that i pulled of the top of a mountain in the adirondaks, good amount of sentimental meaning to that tree. any way, they ended up stripping most of the limbs off the side of it leaving some good gashes and im worried about it dieing off. i was wondering what i could do to seal it up and hopefully save it. i thought ive seen a wrap or bandage for this type of situation, any one have any suggestions?





one of the branches torn off i was able to find, any chance off like grafting that back on? it is a scotch pine if that makes a difference.

also on one of our firs, the leader or main stem was broken off, im pretty sure that another will take over, what should i do to protact the tree and let it heal up?


i appreciate the help, i know it might just be eaiser to have them replaced, i just really dont want to loose that scotch pine

Hard to tell about the scotch pine. I've never seen any bandage that healed tree damage any better than the tree does by itself. My guess is that the tree can heal the gash by itself. No idea about the bottom branches and why they are flatened like that.

You're right about the fir. It should develop another leader.
