Edged with papertape. It appears to be relined. Inpainting along the edges. Possible inpainting in the center sky (difficult to tell through the varnish under UV light). There have been some branches in the center of the sky that have been partially painted over. Whether or not this was done by the artist is not clear. Light scattered craquelure.
