Any advice as to what I can do please?
My young niece has rubbed vaseline all around the trunk of my old apple tree as it was flaky and 'sore'! It was thickly spread and makes a complete circuit of the trunk, will this kill the tree? I have tried to scrape off what I can but it seems to have been absorbed by the bark. Very worried as I would hate to lose it.
