A specialized paint that is applied to a cut surface of a plant after pruning. Also known as wound dressing. Wound paints are no longer recommended as they rarely help and can harm a tree.
Wound paint can be used on oak trees where oak wilt is a problem. It can also be used for aesthetic reasons when large cuts have been made. Some wound treatments may help supress suckers and water sprouts
