I have a 1 yr old tree that has a large crack in the trunk have way up teh 20 ft. tree. It is still alive. Can I repair the crack? I have been told to use a carriage bolt and the tree will grow around it...

What you've been told is correct. If you can bring the sides of the crack together with a carriage bolt, it has a good chance of healing the injury. I think it's worth a try!
