Cuttings are Spoils left by conventional drilling with hollow stem auger or rotary drilling equipment.
In the context of the environment, "cuttings" typically refers to small pieces of plant material that are cut off from a larger plant. Cuttings can be used for a variety of purposes, including propagating new plants, maintaining the shape of a plant, or removing diseased or damaged tissue.
Here are a few examples of how "cuttings" might be used in the context of the environment:
A gardener might take cuttings from a healthy plant in order to propagate new plants. This can be done by cutting off a small piece of the plant, such as a stem or a leaf, and rooting it in soil or water.
A landscape designer might use cuttings to maintain the shape of a plant, by trimming off excess growth or shaping the plant in a particular way.
An arborist might take cuttings from a tree in order to remove diseased or damaged tissue, in order to help the tree recover and prevent the spread of the disease.
