Mango Tree Pruning Question
I have watched Dr Campbell's videos on pruning mango trees.
In the following video, he shows how to prune a young tree from "inception" until about 3 years of age, when a "mango bush" is created. Lots of tipping of branches once they get 12-20" long, creating more and more branching.
However, the next video discusses pruning a vigorous (5 year old) tree. At this point, he seems to continue to do tipping, but now begins to cut off 1-2 major vertically oriented canopy limbs per year, resulting in the canopy being replaced every 4-5 yrs.
Apparently, around 3 yrs of age, he seems to have made the transition from making a dense mango bush to starting to thin the mature tree.
Is this an accurate observation on how to go about pruning?
