thank you, Josh, I will look for the video to come out. The deciduous trees question I did not word well. I was thinking more of carving out hollows to hide scars on trees that I have read that it is ok to do. Trees that I have and was told or read that I could do this to: Crab apple- has a scar where a large limb was removed prior to my purchase, privit (bought at the garden center) has multiple trunks and looks like two trees caught up together, and I was thinking of making one of them look like fire had burned it and killed that part of it, and honeysuckle, which already has some naturaly deadwood. it's small, I was thinking of just cleaning it up and putting Jin seal on it to protect it. But, that will not happen this fall, I am having an issue that I will put in a separate post. BTW, I live in New Jersey, USA, summer is ending.
Hi Tia, I might make this into a YouTube video as i think a lot of people with benefit from this. I will say though that Deadwood is far less common on Deciduous trees as they are seen as very elegant trees, where deadwood is much more common on say conifers as they are looked at as much more rugged trees that have been through a tough life. This is not to say that you wont find any type of deadwood on deciduous but it will be far less common.
