Crape Myrtle Crossing Trunks
So I inherited three CM's with my new house that are approximately 12 years old. I highly doubt they've ever been pruned judging by the branching.
Two of the three I've been able to limb up/clean up satisfactorily. One still has two main trunks that cross badly near the base. I'm afraid if I eliminate these two offending trunks, it'll be too unbalanced and sparse.
I want to do my best to enhance the long term health and vigor of the tree without compromising its appearance too much.
