Hello,
do you mean the question that asks—-
” Our mulberry tree seems to have shifted in the branches and is leaning forward can you give me information about pruning or drastically cutting the limbs and how the tree might react in the growth or new growth of it”


Also, would it be possible to attach a picture of the whole tree?

If so, please respond here and I will find an expert to help you. Thank you.

See pic have any ideas where to cut or what not to see photos

Hello,

Weeping mulberries may have a tendency to lean over. You could possible brace or prop lower branches if it is extreme. Weeping mulberries are fast growers and by the end of the summer, their branches can be dangling on the ground. They can become quite tangled and messy. They can also tolerate a severe pruning. As with all pruning, begin by removing dead and crossing branches—with a weeping mulberry, you do this by standing under it and inspecting the crown. Here are two articles which explain methods of pruning weeping mulberries.
