Master Arborist Sebastian Koerber began taming my mango trees today. He cut off some of the larger branches primarily from the center and bought down the canopy a little. Then with gardener Andy, they trimmed some of the smaller limbs. This is the first pruning of a 3-year plan. Next year the canopy will be cut down lower and by the third year’s trimming the trees should be pruned down to the desired manageable size, just below the electrical wires. Hopefully the mango crop will not be affected too much. This is why the beasts are being subdued s-l-o-w-l-y.
