I bought 2 large trees that where grown by Warren Hill and sold when he got sick I realized I liked them for the fact they are big but there was no taper. I way overpaid for them and the question is what do I do they will never be good the way they are. So the fastest fix cut them down. lol
It did the fix mid summer. I chopped them down to regrow them with taper super excited about these two now. first cut is aways worst ones. I was going to air layer tops off but then id have 4 stumps to grow and don’t have room for that in the garden.
Lesson learned just because a tree is expensive it might not be worth very much at all.
