Stupid Deadwood question

As said in the title this is a probably a stupid question... on shari particularly on older trees the deadwood grows out away from the trunk and looks almost flat like a cobras hood. My question is does new wood continue to grow under the dead wood and pushes the shari out?

No. Quite the opposite in my limited experience. Healthy growth and thickening of the plant will somewhat diminish the shari and other deadwood.
