Proper tree trimming after storm damage
The jagged injury created by a broken branch will heal very slowly since new bark has to grow over the injured area from the surrounding healthy bark. Any kind of irregular surface will act as a barrier to this new bark growth (called a callous). A smooth surface made by a proper saw cut will allow bark to cover the exposed wound much more quickly. Proper tree trimming is important. It is equally important to prune branches back to an area of healthy tissue that will remain alive. If a break occurs near the main tree stem or close to a larger branch, the broken branch should first be removed to reduce the weight and leverage on the healthy wood. Next, the branch should be trimmed back close to the main stem at a slight outward angle to ensure that enough healthy tissue surrounds the cut to promote healing.
