My tree has arrived ant it has a broken trunk... what should I do?

Many of our trees are propagated by Airlayering.

When the tree is propagated this way, the main trunk of the tree is an existing branch from the mother tree.

The trunks of this tree may have the following characteristics:

Main trunk may have many other sections where other branches have been removed
Main trunk may not be completely straight
Main trunk may have several branches on the canopy
Main trunk may have some its outer bark broken or peeling off

Keep in mind that the trunk will keep growing and getting bigger and stronger as the tree grows, and within 12 months, the trunk will look completely different.
