Tree Cavity Filled with CementDamien Carre’, Certified Arborist, recently came across this apple tree at a client’s home near Portland, Wyoming – with a cement block stuck in a cavity.

The practice of filling tree cavity’s with cement is no longer an approved practice in the field of Arboriculture. The long term, negative affects of such practice has long since been researched and documented.

This tree’s cavity remained exposed as it has grown. There are instances where a tree trunk will grow around the cement – this causes stress on the tree and affects the structural integrity of the tree.

If you have questions about the treatment for a tree issue, please consult a licensed and certified Arborist.

    That sure looks like a temporary solution considering the cement will break down before the tree!
