cut trachy/recovery pic

Heres the one that was full of worms and bugs about a week ago. Not quite as drastic as Jims cut jobs, but the technique was basically the same. Nice to see a spear and not worms and rot.

How far did you cut before you saw green,or did you?How long after you cut it, did you see new growth coming out?It has been four days since I cut my pindo,and nothing yet.How old is that trachy?My pindo is 11yrs old this spring.

I first cut away about 6 frawns, then cut the trunk about 2 or three inches down. At that point it looked pretty good so I left it at that. Recovery was almost imediate. Its only been in the ground a year, dont know its actual age. What you see is all growth from this past week. I think I chopped it last Saturday.
