Reviving Old Mango Trees
This is fascinating – look how much you can cut!
Pollarding can also be done with avocado trees.
Additionally, I used the method to keep a sweetgum tree small in order to use it as a living trellis for yams.
It takes some faith to cut back a huge tree, but it seems as if it works well with mangoes. The orchard density on our current property is quite high so I have been researching ways of decreasing the canopy size and making harvests easier. This looks like a good option, plus I get wood I can use for charcoal.
