Hi Suey1,

Just do the trimming after the harvest but you will get less nuts for a coming year depends on how much sugars (branches/wood) has been removed. Cheers

Hi David. Thanks for the tip. What about tying the branches down to keep it in the netted area and away from the black cockatoos?
I’ve read that they tie avocado trees down in some areas.

Hi Suey1,

Yes you can temporary tie down the branches for 1-2 years but this method will not work in the long term. Cheers
