Japanese Black Pine wiring

I recently wired my relatively young (15yr. old) JPB. In the process I broke one branch, not a major break non the less a break. I would say 20% through the diameter. It is the branch leading to the apex. Looking for responses from experience, and if should expect the apex to die, or will the tree heal. I did apply cut paste.

Seal the cut with some liquid cut paste and wrap tightly with pre-stretched parafilm. If it is only 20% it should heal. But no decandling the apex or branch, it will need full throttle.


Thank you very much for the concise reply! I was planning on doing some work in the spring, but as you said i will let the tree be this year. Appreciate it.
