Removing Limb From Tree

To prevent a limb from peeling down the side of a tree as it's removed, saw partway through the branch from the underside first. Make your upward cut close to the trunk and about one-third of the way through. Then start a second cut on top of the limb about one-half inch farther from the trunk than the first cut. When you have sawed down almost to the under cut the limb will break away cleanly.
