    For those not familiar with it, root pruning is when roots are reduced to encourage new root growth and/or to create a clean cut in what would otherwise be a mangling of the roots due to trenching or some other random destructive root practice. We are curious when, how, and why you have root pruned?  What type of tools have you used and what sort of preparation is necessary? Have you root pruned a large tree?
