Will prune in Feb. Did you use cut paste on your tree?

Not yet. I will be hollowing out the scars a little for flatter healing, and I had to buy a new die grinder cause I smoked mine at work cutting tile over head. Tile dust into the front bearing does not work well!

When I refresh the cut I will seal, probably this weekend.

Feb would be a good time. I do not like cutting maples this early but when digging sometimes it can't be helped. Waiting is better for the tree to be in the active sap pushing stage.

Really nice materials. What type of junipers do you have and would you post some pics?
