For Broken Roots
When the root of an orange or other fruit tree is exposed or brakes by
the cultivator, what is the best way to treat that root?
Where a root is actually broken it is best to cut it off cleanly above
the break. This will induce quick healing over and the sending out of
other roots. Where there is only a bruise on one side, all the frayed
edges of the wound should be cleanly cut back to sound bark, which will
have a tendency to promote healing and prevent decay.
