That's where I told the homeowner 50/50 chances on a few of the worst ones.

It should depend on whether it destroyed the cambium or phloem there or not. If the cambium was destroyed, then it really can't make any more phloem. And the cambium may be only like 1, 2 or 3 plant cells in thickness anyway.

Bark blowers came in today.
