Without this, branches could split from the tree later. However, this characteristic may be typical of the tree and it may not be practical to try to correct it with pruning in all cases. Despite the risk of developing included bark, many upright trees stay together and will not break apart easily, even without pruning. If the life expectancy of the tree at the site is less than twenty years, because of site constraints, you may not need to be concerned about trees with included bark. Many trees along streets planted in sidewalk cutouts and other small soil spaces, such as parking lot islands, live less than twenty years.

These combine to slow down the movement of water and elements through the branch union. These features do not occur at the base of branches that are large compared to the trunk, nor in codominant stem bases. Branches larger than about half the trunk diameter measured directly above the branch union typically lack the ability to form an effective protection zone (Eisner and Gilman, 2002). The branch protection zone does not form in the darkened tissue in the center portion of branches. This tissue has been referred to as heartwood and in many trees begins to form in branches by the time they are five to about fifteen years old.
