Not that it makes a difference, but this is on my own property.

I know there is this paint/goo that you can apply to areas where you cut off a branch to prevent insects from entering and ultimatly killing the tree. Is this nessasary? Does the type of tree matter? I will be taking limbs off a pine and a crab apple.

Thanks for any info. :help:

No and be sure you leave the branch collar intact,it contains the hormones that starts the sealing over of the wound.Never make a flush cut,leave the collar you will see were it starts at the base of the branch.
