So, I installed a new garage door opener and obviously noticed the notching that the previous installer did.

Can I just put some new 2x6 collar ties above these and that would be enough?

There are only five collar ties for the whole garage so I was kind of thinking of adding more anyway.

Thanks in advance.

That looks more like a rafter tie ( lower third of the rafter) You should be able to just add another above that and still be in the lower 1/3rd.

Collar ties are in the upper 1/3rd
