we have a HUGE!! mulberry tree which fruits very well and we love to eat the fruit but the tree is so big that we can only get to the fruit on the very lowest branches. can i cut the tree to make it fruit lower down even if we have to go without fruit for a while .



yes i believe you can . its best to do it just before it comes out of being dorement excuse my spelling . i know a lot of fruit grows on new growth or last years growth . weather thats true of mulberry i dont know .im sure someone on here like moon grower will know if you dont hear anything more .
