Ackee Tree Prune

Posted by swrancher 10B FL SWR (My Page) on

My Ackee tree seems to have taken some cold damage to its very top area where the wood is brown, maybe dead...and not grey/green like the rest of the trunk. Should I leave it as is, or should I prune that part off? I'm leaning towards leaving it and seeing what happens, but any advice is appreciated. Below is a picture of the tree and one of the brown part on the top.

Thanks
Tony

i would leave it too and see if it pushes new growth. if not by when the weather warms up and we start getting more rain, top it.

I left it alone and between a week of warm weather with a little rain that must have made it wake itself up. Pushed out a really nice growth spurt over the past week.

Ah...another triumph for Mother Nature! Looks like you be moving closer to having those poisonous little pods in the very near future. Thanks for posting.
