Crepe Myrtle pruning (topping) question
I recently bought a house that has several crepe myrtle trees, all of which have been regularly topped. The current result for these trees is a base (5 feet tall) of larger branches, with several twig-like growth branches coming from each. Is there any way to rescue a more naturally-growing tree through pruning? I'd rather not pull the trees if it can be helped. Thanks in advance.
