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