Hi, I found out about this forum last week and joined up immediately as I have been wondering about a pruning a Robinia Frisia - or not......

My thread has disappeared (or so it seems), so wondering if I am in moderation.....


Welcome to the potting shed

Hi everyone, I am a newbie too  - I am also on a foodie forum where one of the members recommended this forum to another poster who had a problem with his apple tree. This prompted me to join too as I have (potentially a major) problem with a Robinia Frisia overtaking my garden  

I think you lot seem about as mad as us foodies ! LOL

About 12 years ago, in the excitement of having my own garden, I planted a Robinia Frisia - firstly in the wrong place, but it survived the move.

Then about 5 years ago, I thought it would benefit from being pruned .... as it was growing a bit taller than I thought. BIG MISTAKE as what has happened ever since is that the canopy has grown denser and denser until it now blocks out most of the sun from the rest of the garden. 

Is there hope for this tree, or should it be totally removed while it is still manageable ?

Thank you
