Covering Sunburned Bark

Would asphaltum do to use an sunburned bark?

Owing to the attraction of the heat by the black color, asphaltum would

increase the injury by absorption of more heat. Some white coating is

altogether best for sunburn injuries, because it will reflect and not

absorb heat, and a durable whitewash applied as may be needed to keep

the white covering intact is undoubtedly the best treatment. Where the

bark has been actually removed, white paint would be superior to

whitewash to keep the wood from checking while the wound was being

covered laterally by the growth of new bark.
