I use Doc Farwell’s Seal and Heal (green) or the similar Doc Farwell’s
Grafting Seal on cuts that
I think will not heal over within two or three years if they do not slope
enough to shed rain over the
raised lip of new growth. Wood rot develops on wounds that provide wet
conditions favorable to
decay. Large cuts made to permit grafting do not heal rapidly if there is no
foliage feeding the cut from
above. Observe temperature limitations on the label.
