multiple mango trees planted in same pot
I have 3 mango trees that were grown together in a pot and transplanted to the yard about 3 years ago. They are healthy and are about 12 feet tall, two of the trunks are about 3 inches across and the third about half of that. My question is: Should I leave them alone and let them grow or eliminate one or two of the trunks?

Your trees that are so close together will compete for light, water and nutrients.
You will want to move or eliminate 2 of the trees.
In Florida they recommend that a Mango tree be planted 25 to 30 feet from any structure.
