I'm so upset at finding one of my beautiful Victoria plum trees with a large branch broken off, as it was totally weighed down with fuit. I sawed off the remainder of the branch, but the wound left on the tree is about 4 inches long and 2 inches wide. The wound is about 4ft from the base of the tree. Will I have to lose the tree? There are branches with fruit below where the wound is.

Although I believe Louvain is.

My friend has a plum tree that fruited for the very first time this year. It seems to be growing very tall and she needs some advice on pruning. I think they should be pruned in early spring but there is so much different advice out there, I would be grateful if you could give us your advice. I can get a photo if necessary.
