Lion's Tailing

The removal of interior limbs, and in this case ALL interior limbs, has consequences.  When side limbs are removed then the mechanism for energy dispersion and growth is removed from a particular area of a tree.  These limbs will only have "primary" energy which promotes elongation. The energy for "secondary" growth, or "girth" is bypassed. In other words these limbs will grow longer, but not stronger.
