Most experts suggest cutting mango trees down to about 12 feet. Mango trees respond well to pruning and grow back fast. Apply a good fungicide to all pruning cuts. When pruning, clear out all water sprouts, remove every dead or dying branch, and every twig hidden from the sun. The inside of your mango tree must be exposed to plenty of sunlight. Cut the mango tree's branches where the branches connect together. This enables new growth quicker than if you just cut the branch anywhere. Hope this is descriptive enough! You can prune your tree now.
