I have a friend that has a Cottonwood tree that the trunk is about 30 ft. tall and about 3 ft accross. He has trimmed the top of this tree off,and wants to make a Totem out of the tree. The tree is is still rooted. My question is, does he need to seal the top where the tree is exposed. He is worried that after the sculpture is done that there will be sprouts comming from the top
