Wood needs to be split along the grain by tools such as cleaving axe, side knife, splitting maul, hammers and wedges.
Tree trimming types include the following; crown thinning, crow raising and crown reduction. In the process of crown thinning the following needs to be done; keeping lateral branches as evenly spaced as possible, pruning away branches that cross other branches and not removing more than one fourth of a living crown at once. Pedestrians are provided clearance when live branches on at least two thirds of a tree’s height are maintained in the process of crown raising. By removing too many branches from the bottom half a weak stem is formed.
