    Trying to save a live oak that is growing in circumferance into roof line. Can tree be notched in order to save tree and my roof?

    • That won’t be good for the tree. Rot could set into the wound, for example, plus it could weaken it and cause it to snap. Could you remove the branch (assuming it’s not the whole trunk) that is growing into the roof? Or could you notch the roof itself?
