cedar tree was damaged by storm. Large section torn off. Can I reattach the bark with duct tape and help it to heal? I can cut the branches and just leave the bark and tape it back to tree. Please help.

    Please send a picture. I like how you are thinking with duct tape. Need an ID on the plant and to be able to see the damage. – stormy Sep 21 '17 at 23:48

    If you want to try this, do it immediately, as quickly as possible, because if its going to work, it needs to be fairly immediate. Its worth a try - if the branches are large and heavy, they'll have to be removed first, but if they're fairly light, leave then in place for the time being. You may need to use a couple of canes, wood struts or sticks to provide extra support (think splints). – Bamboo Sep 22 '17 at 0:07
