how to trim split mesquite

mylle1(9)May 30, 2013

Our 30 yr old mesquite split in the wind and we would like to save the remaining part. The trunk is badly split, how do we trim it back, do we need to paint it ?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Just saw that limb to the trunk. I don't believe anyone "paints" anymore.
