|The tree trunk got split from a storm yesterday. The trunk is some 4' before branching. The split is about 1' from the first branches. We ratcheted it together for the time being and applied sealer. Can the tree be saved?

|Sounds as though you've done everything you can to help your tree recover. At this point you'll need to wait and watch. Check it in the spring just when new growth begins to make sure whatever you used to ratchet it together isn't so tight that it mars the bark. Hope your tree recovers!
