Up until today’s post the entries on this blog have covered several years of development for each tree described. Today’s post will be different, covering one day of additional development for a tree whose prior development history I posted earlier this month (see the September 8 post for this tree).
After the September 8 entry I was dissatisfied with the long branches snaking out from the trunk. Today I decided to prune it back hard and repot. Although in many regions in the Northern Hemisphere it would be too late in the season to repot a ficus, in Southern California we still have two or three months of good growing weather with nighttime temperatures in the 50s and 60s so I think it will have time to recover.
