Fig Tree

Asked August 29, 2019, 8:53 AM EDT

Hi I live in New Jersey and planted a LSU Fig Tree in April. I have included a picture of the tree and would like to know how I should prune the tree so it grows more vertical than what it looks like now

Thank you for your question. Your state's Extension service has an excellent article on fig trees in the home garden, which covers when and how to prune them to keep them growing upright: https://njaes.rutgers.edu/FS1198/

I hope this is helpful. Good luck!
