Flowering Dogwood Tree


Gina tack added on April 30, 2016 | Answered

Tree just lost some big branches that were dead. Should I cut them at the base and what should I cover the cuts with so insects don't get in?

There isn't a lot you can use to cover cuts that won't (in the end) hurt a tree, so you shouldn't prune it right now, because boring insects will be most active now through June.
