Zone 93003 | larrywaltz123 added on September 8, 2017 | Answered

Cut my Reed Avocado  Tree to the 6 main branches in February. Now it’s come back with a vengeance and is growing like a weed…In all directions. Its branches (although thin) are quite crowded…I need to prune it so that next year or the year after we have that delicious fruit again. Help!

Keep the larger branches intact, and trim any smaller branches that cross the path of any other branches. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/avocado/pruning-avocado-trees.htm
