Question 1

Question from Dawn Thornton, posted May 2010

6 year old pecan has been girdled at about 1.6 metres above ground level by a bark-munching insect6 year old pecan has been girdled at about 1.6 metres above ground level by a bark-munching insectThis 6 year old pecan has been girdled at about 1.6 metres above ground level by a bark-munching insect.

Does anyone know what the offending beast might be and is this ring barking likely to kill the tree?

Would I be better to prune the tree below the damaged area now or just leave it and hope the tree calluses over the damage?
