I responded to your PM. The last I heard the ISA was not endorsing using a sealant for pruning cuts. In fact they expressly warn against it. I know all trees are different to some degree but they are also all the same to a large degree.

I just commented because nobody learns any thing if all we do is pat each other on the back and say good job. I'm the guy that usually ends up at a job a guy like you did to explain to them why their tree died, fell over, split or whatever. It just gets old

Opening them up like that makes them more likely to break branches in wind storms. I saw 2 university studies on this 3 years ago. Both were independant of each other and one was a 10 year study.

Read my quote below and hit every tree class you can.

yeah your definately right. the sad thing is that way to much thinning is the norm down here and until someone [perhaps me] educates them this is the kind of work people will keep seeing. on the sealent issue it is law down here to seal OAK wounds...oak wilt kills more trees than san antonios improper pruning practices haha
