Hello, I'm wondering if xylem and phloem are able to move water and nutrients laterally. Like if there is a very large injury to the lower trunk as in a large section of bark and cambium on the lower trunk was skinned off down to the sapwood. The sapwood would be walled off. Can the existing healthy phloem and xylem circulation go laterally around the injury to nourish the rest of the tree? I'm thinking it must. Thank you.
