Need help bringing back an old Lilac Bush
I removed a tulip tree from my backyard that was shading an old lilac tree, and I want to bring the lilac back to life so it blooms again now that it finally has some sun.
The lilac tree consists of about 4 very long and thick branches about 8 feet high. These tall branches only have leaves on the end along the last couple feet of the branch.
I was wondering what would happen if I sawed off these 4 branches to about 12 inches high. Would the lilac survive and put out new shoots? or would I just be killing it?
Thanks for your help-
