Maintenance Pruning

Branches that have been affected by high winds should be cut in sections to prevent them splitting and tearing back to the branch Union. A clean and final cut should be made at this point just forward of the branch bark collar. if it's too close to the collar this may result in a flush cut and disease may be able to penetrate the natural defences the tree has and cause the tree problems.
