Ficus, Benjamina tree trimming, pruning

Ficus trees grow very well in our arid climate and are quite tolerant you our hot summer temperatures. In their natural habitat they can grow up to 90+ feet and in the Phoenix area They are not frost tolerant and will sustain damage from a frost to the outer and upper leaves and branches. Many of the Ficus trees that were damaged by frost were improperly trimmed as the branches were topped which never healthy for the tree or proper technique.
