Tree Pruning.

If trees are properly and intelligently managed they will never need severe pruning. Our most careful fruit-growers prune with thumb and finger, pinching back shoots that are certain to be m the way when they grow a little further. When it is necessary to prune large limbs do it before the sap has started, and at once cover the surface with paint, to protect the wound from the air. After the sap has started the paint will not/adhere. If grafting wax is used it is better still, as this will adhere until the trees grow new bark entirely over the wound.
