Fixing a butchered Fig
Our nephew pruned our fig tree a couple of years ago all the way back...no branches at all. We were floored. It grew out and is producing wonderful white figs (they are green, but I am told they are white), however, some of the branches are so high even with a 10' ladder I can't reach them, and there are a ton of little branches comming down that inter-tangle. I was surprised it survived, but it is very old, at least 30 years. How do I prune it and when, so that the branches grow out lower and don't go straight up and I can create not such a tangle on the lower ones. I had never pruned it before and it wasn't producing well, it is now but it needs some help. Help!!
