I was wonder how to correctly deadwood the small deadwood at the tips and ends of the branches. The ones that are so small if you were to try and cut it it would just break? I hear it is wrong to smack it with the side of your handsaw. Maybe I heard wrong, maybe this person never been out to the end of a branch to see the dead wood. Maybe you just a 16 foot polesaw to cut what you can see from that far away. I don't want to be a hack anymore I want to change and do it right. Maybe I need a pair of those felcos and hand clip each one.
