    “When removing large branches, try not to leave stubs behind because stubs may encourage rot and disease. When pruning the branches, remember to trim all the way back to the main trunk or to 1 of the larger lateral branches. When trimming small branches, cut down to the bud by cutting at a slight angle just above the bud. This will allow the tree to heal faster.”
