    Just cut back a walnut where wind had damage a branch to find it corky inside so cut farther back. Now I'm at the main truck and still have corkyness, as there is no growth beyond my cut back I assume I should cut the truck back to the next branch. The tree its self fell many years back and is growing on its side so I guess its more likely to get rot.

  2. Cut it back to the end whre the shoot is staight up.

    Youll have still some rot .

    Dig underneath a bit so you dont Put the saw in the dirt.

    Angle. Cut it to keep the rain out .

    Find some tar just before winter and fill it .

    This is a picture of me last month in flroida . And canary island palm trimming.
    Its my job.

    Its not a factory.
     
  6. But after a factory you can walk to go get a beer , after a day doing this you crawl to the bed,,
    But it is badass work,, takes years to learn ,.
     
  7. You can't kill a walnut tree by chopping it back, trust me I've tried.

    Why would you want to?

    Walnuts are good for you.
     
  9. Because squirrels hide them all over the garden then forget them and I don't want to live in a walnut forest.

    Nice one, hope you want you wanted.
     
  13. Looking at that basal branch (the knobbly one) chances are that it'll be like that all along, what with all the old cut scars. Pollard or coppice in late winter. If that beasty gets much bigger there may be a chance of it toppling as from what I can see there are five decent sized trees growing out of a rotting hinge/pivot point. Smells nice when on the fire walnut:) Crush some leaves and have a good sniff for me TW, ours at work is'nt in leaf yet.
    I'll fix that for myself, just delete "for" in the penultimate sentence and replace with "of" before anyone else does. Urrghh!

    @Pony they do smell good and also when cutting the wood.

    3out of the 5 are ones which have toppled years ago.

    So walnuts don't mind a good cutting back?
     
  16. Walnut trees love to split .
    I heard once that lightning is attracked
    To a walnut tree more than other species . More acidic,
    In the western states of usa ,
    There is a little buger called
    A walnut tree beetle , tiny bastards .
    can wipe out a tree in a few seasons .
    Like a termite in its behavior,
    It loves the black walnut trees .
    Yummy !

  18. The neighbours have there's virtually pollarded every 5 years to stop it falling down. The new branches grow several feet per year.
