That is a great thought and the reason I have the tree. I have been using
the trimmings from training the tree for smokin wood for years. Steaks off
the grill are great this way and the brisket out of the smoker even better.
Some of the reasons I do not have a problem with cutting it way back if it
would help. At this point I'm going to wait and see where if any new growth
starts then trim. Its always been a very forgiving tree to my cutting
habits. :-) Thanks
