One good example of this is the use of tree climbing spikes to prune a tree. No certified Arborist would ever use these wound-causing devices on a tree that is to be kept. Tree climbing spikes can cause wounds that puncture the cambium tissue, which is the front door to pathogens. These wounds are extremely difficult for a tree to seal over and may lead to the tree dying.
