Trimming a Fig Tree

roxlet | Jul 21, 2010 05:31 AM

I never expected the fig tree that I planted about 5 years ago in our Westchester NY garden on a swath of land between the neighbor's and our driveway to grow quite as large as it has gotten. It is really huge and will soon begin overhanging both the neighbor's property and our driveway. It is loaded with figs, which I know will not ripen until fall, so I am wondering when and how to cut this beast back. Anyone familiar with fig trees?
