That doesn't look like spruce. Trusses are made from, and must be repaired with, spruce. At least around here.

I'd repair it with like-materials if possible. They'd have different expansion rates in winter versus summer, humid versus dry. Might not hold up for a year, but I don't know.
I know them gusset plates are **** under fire conditions.

That's right next to my bedroom. Switched rooms for the night. Don't want it to come crashing down on me.

We had a new roof put on like 7 years ago. They "strengthened" the trusses. Looks like it was a problem and they were trying to mask it.

There is nothing like driving around in a truck with a big lift, when speed bumps are indistinguishable from freshly laid asphalt, and driving over a Miata hardly threatens to spill the coffee in your travel mug.

It's not a bad repair, just technically incorrect.
