I have a white dogwood that is about 10 or so years old. My son backed the truck into it and knocked off 3 sections of bark on one side. What can I do for the tree?

If you just leave the wound alone it will callous over on its own. Watch it though, because insects might find it an interesting place to call home. As a rule, trees will heal on their own with no help from us. Good luck with your tree!
