Is there any difference between a tree branch and a tree limb?

Tree limb is slightly more poetic.
Thanks, Feebs.
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
I have never seen the phrase "tree limb" in my life.
Normally you'd just use branch.

Limb might be used poetically (or aslo perhaps in formal/scientific ways?)
Isn't the tree limb on the end of the tree branch?
Try out our live chat room.
Those are twigs.
I always thought a limb was intermediate in thickness between a branch and a twig! Emotion: smile
Any forester I have worked with has referred to the limb as being the entire branch from the trunk to the end of the twigs.
