Message: I have a large established Victoria Plum tree.Due to the weight of friut and helped by rain and wind a couple of large branches have broken off leaving the tree looking mis-shapen and with many of he fruit bearing branches out of easy reach. The Plum are lovely but not worth risking life and limb for!
Can I cut it back hard so that i can in future keep it at a managable height?
can anyone advise me?

Message: Our plum tree has lots of fruit on it. The problem is the tree has very many quite long new shoots or branches. Should these be cut off so as not to stunt the growth of the fruit or should they be lefton the tree. Some of these shoots are 2' long or more. Any advice you can give me would be appresiated. Thank you Ken

Message: We have an ornamental red plum in a high wind area. It has always been teathered but this year, it is not holding up.
Is there a way to thin my tree to get some of the weight off and let the wind blow through it? It is 12 feet tall...hate to lose it!
