Question for Ken please!
I appreciate your help with my crepe myrtle. I just went out and cut the dead part of the branches down to about 4 -5 inches above where the leaves sprout out. In some cases the leaves sprouted out in three separate directions off the stem. I had to cut the limb off on the left side as nothing was growing on it. I am afraid to cut any lower down to the leaves because I don't want to ruin the look. Fearful of crepe murder! On the left side towards the rear of the tree you will see a few branches that are about 6 inches of no leaves, but below are the leaves branching out in 3 directions. Do I cut those branches lower?
