Can anyone advise whether I should prune this large offshoot from my 8 year old Kowhai tree?
MOST OF US HERE LIVE IN UK. I HAVE NEVER SEEN A KOWHAI TREE BUT GOOGLE IMAGES OF MATURE TREES SEEM TO SUGGEST THAT YOURS IS ADOPTING A FAIRLY NORMAL SHAPE.
I WOULD JUST LEAVE IT ALONE.
Ok, thanks. I'll see how it develops.
Your Sophora sp. tree is adopting its usual shape ; quite a few of those are fairly hardy in the UK in a sheltered position . Best left alone .
PS Used to use a Victa 2-stroke mower years ago ; one of the best ever !
OK, thanks. I'll put the pruning saw back in the shed! The Victa's been going strong now for over 10 years.
Brilliant mowers , cut through anything
