If someone could give me an idea of pruning an ornamental plum that is getting overgrown and weak it would be appreciated. It has been in this landscape for 12 years or so and now is showing more trunk than color and the branches are breaking in the wind and/or snow. There is also some shrivelling of the leaves in different areas of the older branches. This is in central Wisconsin and it has just finished with the blossoms, under irrigation for the entire time with the fertilizer injections every spring at least. It looks to me as if it is just getting old and the new growth from the bottom is the futere for this plant. I don't know and haven't found an informational website regarding it. thanks, .rick.
