I would like to know if it is possible to graft a piece of bark
with the cambium layer attached to a red maple tree that has been
chewed off down to the sap wood by rodents over the winter. The tree
in question is still in a dormant state. It has a strip of about 6% of
bark still intact. Would this give the tree a chance at survival?
Possibly helpful grafting resources:
