Answer: 
All I can say is, I have used the pruning sealant to cover severely damaged areas, and it has worked for me. I can not attest to the wrapping. Always double check the directions on the label.

Actually a Home Depot worker told me it works as good if not better than rubberized spray intended for roofs. Thicker and obviously cheaper as well. I'm just wondering if anybody has used this for roof.

Linda, I would most certainly stay clear of the HD worker who made that claim. Their comparison is more like comparing figs to grapefruit. The Pruning Seal you have in question is a great product for what it was designed for, but for use on your roof was not one of them. If you would spray a coat (or two) on any flat surface, leaving it in the weather for a while, I am confident, it will sooner than later start cracking, separating, and spreading. This will leave you in a dried mess. I suggest you return it, or go cut and seal some limbs. Read Less

Hi Tim. You can use this product on your pecan tree to protect pruned areas from insect and disease damage. There are no precautions against using on actively growing trees.

I am not sure I understand your question, but assuming you are considering applying the pruning sealant to one or more freshly cut limbs on any size tree or bush, I would say yes. Keep in mind all you are doing is trying to keep unwanted ants, worms, beetles, etc. from going past the bark and damaging your tree.

I don't recall seeing new growth appear where a cut has been properly sealed. Now a fourth inch back, well, that may be debatable. I would recommend giving it a try.

13 oz. Ready-to-Use Pruning Seal Aerosol Spray is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 98.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets the job done. Careful: Powerful squirt This product is great for sealing tree wounds from pruning. It is so much easier to apply than the stuff for which you have to use a brush, which I last used about two decades ago. Careful about how forceful the spray is, however. I ruined a shirt, because a slightly hollow tree wound hurled some of the stuff back at me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Splatter Ahead! I just applied this product to some trees that I pruned, so it is too early to determine how effective it will be over time at protecting them. However, the product dispenses from the can with a great deal of "spitting" and "splattering," so I essentially ruined a work shirt in the process of applying it. The directions on the can instruct the user to apply it close-up (6 - 9 inches) and in short bursts, so it's not surprising that the gooey liquid caused a lot of spray back.The product instructions mention the possibility of dripping -- I'll say! Unless you're prepared to wear a hazmat-style gear, or to don a paint suit, you may do better to find an alternative product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Triming Live Oak Trees Live Oak trees are prone to a disease called oak wilt. To defend my property from oak wilt, I use pruning paint immediately after triming a limb. I have hundreds of live oaks so oak wilt is always a concern. I would give this stuff 5 stars if it wasn't so messy. Be sure to be up-wind when you stray or the over spray will end up on you and your glasses. At the end of the day have some mineral spirits available for cleanup or scrub the hair off your arms with soap and water.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Spectracide works Useful on pruned tree and shrub limbs. Helped in preventing them from drying out and getting infested and allowed for faster regrowth. Only drawback is the spray nozzle that clogs easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aerosol vs Can I've used the can and brush before and now after using the aerosol can, I will not go back to a can and brush. It was so much cleaner and I could direct the application very easily.
