We have a 6 1/2 foot plumeria that just branched into three 8-inch branches and it is top heavy and falling over. The whole trunk of the tree is 2 inches in diameter. Can I cut 12 inches below the three branches (on the trunk) and cut 12 inches above the soil on the trunk and splice the two pieces together? The diameter of the trunk is very even at these two cutting locations. Is this a good idea? Is there a better idea? Thank you for your help!! Patrick
