I know it's bad for the tree, and probably spells the death nell for the tree... but, hypothetically, if you had to take a large limb of at a critical point of the tree, eg. main trunk, the rot will start setting in before the wound wood can do it's stuff... what is the reckoning of painting the heartwood with arbtex(? or what ever it was, before my time) up to around 15 years worth of growth rings, short of the edges? The idea is to protect the heartwood, but not go to the edges with the protective paint, thus allowing the pathogens to move freely, so the wound wood would meet the arbtex in a shorter time thu saving the heartwood form rotting. If I haven't explained this well, I could maybe draw a picture Thoughts please... pro's and con's
