Amen. Unfortunately what happens is that a lot of us are trying to prune off large limbs with a small pruning saw while standing on top of a wobbly ladder. Hey, it's not always an easy job, and it can take us what seems like eternity to cut through large branches. So instead of doing things right, we opt to take short cuts. We make one cut, while grunting and groaning even with that. The limb cracks and falls down to the ground but along with it a long strip of bark also tears off, leaving a bad looking wound in the tree. "Oops!" But that surely is what will happen if you don't follow the steps as Sean pointed out... as painful as it may be.
