CATCH A BREAK

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - HOME -

RE­CENT strong winds have caused many tree branches to be­come partly bro­ken. They can­not be re­paired and it is a mis­take to try se­cur­ing them with splints. The only so­lu­tion is to com­pletely cut off all the parts of a branch be­yond and in­clud­ing the dam­aged part. If the break is close to a trunk, the en­tire branch must be re­moved. Most de­cid­u­ous trees soon sprout re­place­ment wood.
