Wind-blown Orange Trees

What would you do for citrus trees five years old that have been badly

blown out of shape?

Such trees must be trued up by pruning into the wind; that is, cutting

to outside buds on the windward side and to inside buds on the lee side;

also reducing the weight by pruning away branches which have been blown

too far to the leeward. Sometimes trees can be straightened by moving

part of the soil and pulling into the wind and bracing there by a good

prop on the leeward side, but that, of course, is not practicable if the

trees have attained too much size.
