Q.Pruning a big mango tree

Zone 620006 | sri_sound@yahoo.co.in added on December 14, 2018 | Answered

I have a big mango tree aged 15 years. It has grown to more than 25 feet and has just 3 branches all above 15 feet. Can I cut it back to 6 feet now. I don’t mind losing the yield for two or three years

It is best to do this when it is just a little younger, but that doesn't mean that it can't be done.

Usually, you can do this at just about any time, but since it has aged some I would recommend doing this when you are starting to see vigorous growth for the year. Usually you will notice a slow-down during some parts of the year, followed by vigorous growth. This is when to prune.
