Badly damage tree trunk of maple
I've recently moved into a new home only to find that the best maple tree of the yard is damage at the trunk, splitting in to two, so to speak. There is a rope in the higher branches hold the tree together or from falling on the house... But what I was wondering, is there any way of repairing this tree by bolting it and\or cable wrenching it closer together... I can provide pic if needed.
