I have had this umbrella tree for a few years now, but it hasn’t formed any branches. It continues to simply grow straight up. Now it’s getting to be too tall for the width of it’s trunk and I’d like to have branches lower on the tree. If I cut the top 2/3 of the tree off, so you think it will grow branches at the cut site? Or will that likely end up just killing the tree?
I’ve also thought of trying to air root the tree and then cut between the leaf stalks, but then I’d lose the width of the current base.
I’d appreciate anybody’s thoughts on this. Thanks!!
