A tree can self-heal bark damage by forming what’s known as a callus. On this tree, you can see the callus on the left trunk. It forms a thick, woody-looking edge around what’s visible of the exposed trunk wood. The right trunk callus has nearly closed over the original wound. When you see callus forming, your tree is on its way to healing. Make sure it has adequate fertilizer and water during the growing season so it can direct energy toward callus formation.

In this foyer, white oak wall and ceiling panels pay homage to old barn interiors. To connect the house with its coastal California location, designers used a blue color palette throughout the rooms. Here, the foyer gets a gray-blue hardwood floor and a blue mirror.
