    Hi all,

    Im new and green to the site. I hope this is posted in the proper forum.

    My three year old Pink Cassia Bakeriana had a perfect canopy before hurricane irma decided to do its own pruning.
    I did prune some new, lower branches a few months ago but as you can see, the tree is funny looking.

    My questions are:
    1. Should I trim the large top branches and shape it even and round? Will it ever grow tall?
    2. Should I leave the top branches and prune off all the mid and lower branches? Will it ever grow a normal canopy?
    3. Do i leave it alone? will the top branches drop and the lower ones catch up and eventually look normal?

    Thank You!

    I'd whack it almost exactly in half, that top looks like secondary growth anyway, prolly sprout back like a mofo!
