Lon, thanks, great trick I'll go try it. This gives me some hope for a 
couple of 2-3 year old apples that I fear MAY have the ubiquitous yellow tag 
burried down on its tap root and starting to girdle it (will have to cut too 
many side roots to tell). Maybe it will simply callus and form a whole new 
set of roots above the girdle line. del
