Pruning Frangipanis

If you are in South East Queensland and would like to remove a 1m to 1.5m frangipani or would like to crop (reduce to about 25% of original size) a frangipani or would like to prune (reduce to 40% to 60%) a frangipani, feel free to contact us. We might be able to do this job with your help or do it for you for free. If we do, we will also take away most of the offcuts for you and save you taking them to the tip.
We will most likely ask you to email a few photos and answer a few questions before letting you know if, when and how much we can help you.

A Full Prune
After frangipanis experience ideal conditions and accelerated growth, their health may deteriorate. The lower branches and branches in the middle are likely to deteriorate first. Initially, the weak branches will become soft and thin, then black and squishy and if they don't bend and fall off, they will become dead hardwood.

A full prune will increase the amount of nutrients going to each branch. The branches will immediately start growing thicker, stronger and healthier than before. It may take a year or two for the frangipani tree to regain its bushiness and full shape but it will be a stronger, healthier better looking frangipani in the following decade.

The best time for a full prune in Australia is before summer, preferably July, August or September.
Frangipanis grow more strongly through summer so they are better able to cope with the stress and recover sooner during the summer months.

Another reason for a full prune is to better enjoy the frangipani flowers. Some frangipani owners complain that all the flowers grow too high. They cannot get a close look at the flowers and cannot get a close smell of the frangipani flower fragrance. After a full prune, the frangipani will produce lower branches and flowers closer to the ground.

A Small Prune
If you need to cut off a single branch or small number of branches, you can easily do it with a chainsaw or handsaw. If possible, make the cut vertical so the branch does not hold water. Make the cut close to the fork so new shoots do not grow from the end of the cut off branch, and as mentioned above, prune during late winter or early spring.
