How do I fix a broken tree branch?

Answer

There are ways to fix a broken tree branch. You must first remove the tree branch by making a clean cut approximately 1 to 2 inches in from the broken area of the branch. Use a sharp knife to trace around the area where bark may have gotten peeled back on the branch. This will help the tree to start regrowing a protective layer on the branch.

The broken branch will need to be placed back as near the exact spot it broke off from as possible. This will give it a better chance for healing the tree branch.
