Before the tornado swept through Rice County 5 years ago our yard was a beautiful woodland. Only a few trees remain one being an ash tree. The circumstance is about 42” at 4 feet from the ground. I see different products that we can apply ourselves to help save the tree. Can you help me by recommending the one you feel is best. Thank you
Thanks for your question.
Sorry to see the state of your ash tree. Unfortunately, as volunteer Master Gardeners for the University of Minnesota, we are governed by a policy that prohibits us from recommending specific commercial products. Your situation is one that absolutely requires assessment and inspection by a professional arborist. See:
