One of my friend's plum trees split (broke) the other day in the wind. It didn't split in half but close. She has the branch tied up but she needs to do something at the split. The branch is still alive but when it broke it also tore down the trunk a little. Supposedly there is a wound treatment you can get. Do any of you know how she would mend this so it lives and keeps growing?

If there are live branches below the split, she may be better off cutting it off below the split. A pic would help greatly.

I have a dwarf peach tree that seems to have 9 lives. It had a major branch broken off so badly at the bottom I thought it was a goner, but we just wrapped some gauzy binding around it to hold it up and it finally healed itself. I don't know if yours is so that can be done or not.
