Q.Follow-up questions to the Susan Patterson article on Girdled Tree Help

Zone 58503 | Anonymous added on April 17, 2020 | Answered

I am not able to find anyone with my local Cooperative Extension Office who is familiar with this process.
Is there some resource information available that would also have photos of this procedure?
Is it correct to trim the entire length of the twigs that are to lie flat on the tree trunk?
Do I need to use a number of twigs that is sufficient for the twigs to stand right next to the other for the complete circumference of the girdled area?
Any other information would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much.

This website will offer detailed information on performing a bridge graft. Just make sure to use the same wood that the tree is, or else the graft will not take.
