The first is my Palo Verde tree. It's about 2 years in the ground now, and has grown quite a bit. In fact, probably too much, as became clear after a wind storm this summer.
|something not quite right...|
|That was not a very clean break - it looks much better now (a few months later)|
|it may have also taken me until this weekend to get rid of the branch... oops.|
Looking at the picture below, i'm thinking the bottom 4 branches have to go?
|ignore the cables - they don't do anything any more, and will be removed at some point soon.|
This is kind of hard to see, but all the branches are on one side (forward in the bed), so getting rid of them will hopefully make the tree more balanced, and less likely to fall over at some point?
|note to self - trim the grasses...|
I'm thinking i'm just going to have to dive in and do it! Any sage words of advice?
