Girdled crabapple question
Much to my delight my girdled crabapple tree is acting completely normal, leafing out and soon to bloom.
My question is, if the nutrients aren't flowing through the bark how is this possible? The tree is totally healthy. Do I need to worry about it diieing or did I somehow luck out?
The girdle is completely around the tree, about 4-6inches top to bottom.
