MANGO TREE UPROOTED

Zone 34104 | enyakiwi added on September 23, 2017 | Answered

I have a large Mango tree that was uprooted from Erma. It's trunk is 16" in diameter. It's been on it's side for two weeks with exposed roots. I had the top cut back in hopes that I can upright it with a few men but it still is too heavy and I can't get a back hoe to it without damaging my and my neighbors lawn. Is it salvageable if I cut it back more? Please see photos.

It doesn't appear that the photos uploaded correctly. Mango can typically recover from some instances like this, however, there is a great chance this tree will die. Cutting it back more will stunt its fruit production, potentially, for a few years.
