Re: prune old plum tree

What I would do is wait until june /july next year. Don't prune before that or there is a risk introducing disease.

In June / July prune about a third of the length of the branches. Aim for a goblet shape with the central part of the tree being relatively free of growth. That will allow air circulation and help protect from disease.

Good luck.
