We have a tree (think forget what kind - I will look into it if it matters) That has overgrowninto our small yard. The neighbor had said cut it any time. Well dh was actually home and we trimmed it. Now i don't want to KILL the tree and I fear this wasn't a good time of year to do it and also would love tips to keep it healthy. At one time I remember my dad painting the cut spot to kind of seal it. i would appreciate it if anyone could share some tips. Thanks!
