Trimming Tree Limbs
By: Danny Lipford
Removing limbs from trees and shrubs is a necessary part of gardening, but you must do the job correctly. To avoid splintering the cut, make a relief cut a foot or so outside the branch collar. This will remove the weight of the limb so you can make a cleaner final cut. The final cut should be just outside the collar or wrinkled area where the branch and the tree join.
