Few Fundamental Principles Must Be

PrompItly-Ready to Give Advice.
Triee surgery is comparatively
simple and inexpensive and most per
sons can, with a little ureliminary
practice, undecrtake th- anpler types
of tree replair work that will prove
immensely profitable i saving fine
trees. A fewv fundamental principles
must be observed to secure permanen-.
tly goodl results.
(1) RemIrove the dead, dlecayedl, dlis
easedl, Or injured woodl or bark. When
on a limb this can often be done best
bx -emoving the entire limb; on a
large. limb or on the trunk it may
mean at times dligging out the dlecay
ed matter so that a cavity is formed.
2 Sterilize all eut, surfaces.
3 Waterproof 'all cut surfaces.
4 Leave the wvork in the most favor
able condition for rapid healing; this
will often mean filling or covering
5 Watch the wvork from year to
year for dlefects and if any appear at
tendl to them imm!d iately.
Removing Large Limbs.
A large limb rarerly should be re
movedl by a single saw cut from the
upper side, as this usually strips the
b~ark and woodl as it falls. A preli
minary cut should he made from the
under sidle, beyond the point for the
final cut; andl a second cut on the up)
per sideO an inch or more b)eyondl the
first one. Then cut the stub close to
thle trunk. A c'oat ot goodl shellac
should be applied over the entire cut
aera of the bark, other sapwood, and
the cambium immediately.
Creosote should1( he applied to the
rest of the expousedl wood not already
coveredl by the shellac, as a protection,
and tihe e'ntire shellacked andl creosot
ed surface should be finally water
proofedl with thick coal tar or as;
pihalt. G raIt ing wvax, particularly the
thick l iqu id alcoholic k indi, is excell
en t for wa terp roo fing sumall surfaces.
A nother goo dImet hod of treating the
scars is to cha r the surface with a
gasoline or alcohol blast torch andl
then qjuickly cover the hot sur'face
with heavy tar, pi tch, or hot asphalt.
The treated surfac es should be watch
ed from year to year and roated as
Call and be
necessary to preserve the waterproof
In removing small branches and
twigs the cut should be made as close
to the supporting branch as possible
so as to leave no projecting stub. The
pruning wounds must be sterilized- and
waterproofed. For very small wounds
shellac is handy.
When a wound has been allowed to
remain untreated for a year or more
decay-producing organisms are al
most certain to have started an area
of decay and insect activity behind the
exposedl surface. Such regions gen
erally require excavation of dlecayed
and diseased woodl and sterilizing andl~
waterproofing of the cut se 'Cs.
T1he tools or<",arily requiaredl are
two outside-ground socket--handled
gouges (one 3-4 of an .ch and the
other 1 1-2 inches), a knife, mallet or
hammer, and an oilstone. Only keen
edges should be used on the bark or
near the cambium.
Remove al Ithe diseased or insect
eaten andl also all dliscolored or water
soaked wood. In decayed areas of
many years' standing there may be
only a thin shell of healthy wvood
aroulnd the cavity, in which case the
tree must be br-aced or guyed, and it
is often better r-emovedl and replaced
b~y a healthy one.,
Do not leave a cavity so it will r
tain water. In shaping a cavity that
is to be filled with cement, etc, have
the sides undercut if possible, so as
to hold the filling more firmly in place,
[rn-olled bark at the edges of the open
ing should be cut awvay a ft-er the de
cayed and dIiseasedI matter- has been
completely excavated and the edges
of the sap~woodl and bar-k adjoining the
caimbium shellacked. The rema indeJ
of the cavity also must be sterili-zed.

If a long cavity is to be filled with
cement or asphalt, it usually is ad..

as a rule, should be bolted every 18
or 24 inches.
