Tip Of The Day - 8/24/05 - Pruning

Large tree branches should be pruned using a 3 step process to avoid stripping the bark from the tree trunk as the branch falls away

1 - use a pruning saw and make a small, shallow cut through the bark on the underside of the branch several inches from the trunk

2 - starting at the top side of the branch and a few inches farther out than your undercut, cut all the way through the branch

3 - make a final clean cut to remove the stub; make the cut just outside the branch collar, the swollen area where the branch joins the trunk
