Branch Failure is a very serious and pending hazard. If you find a large limb that shows this type of separation, you must address it immediately. This split branch would offer no warning, and could crack and fall on anything or anyone at a moment’s notice. But, unless you are trained and certified in felling trees properly, do not attempt to limb a branch of this size by yourself. This is a dangerous situation and very risky if you are not fully prepared and experienced. Call a tree surgeon to help you. Please see the procedure DBS used to remove this limb in the “Weekend Warrior” section of the website.
