Hi, live up in Merritt, BC...today my partner and neighbour said they were going to prune the fruit trees we have here, we are renters. I specifically said to go easy because I grew up with a father nicknamed Edward Scissorhands and I know all too well the disappointment that comes from overpruning. Anyway, they called me out to look and they totally decimated the chokecherry. They barely left any stump ( few maybe three inches) plus cut off all the suckers growing nearby. I refrained from having a fit outside but lost my bananas once inside the privacy of the house. What will be my best approach to a/get the stump growing some shoots and b/rooting hormone propagation. We are about Zone 5 here so there are some buds on the branches but no leaves yet. Would someone give me some multiple options as to how I should get some branches growing. Really I'm just feeling like weeping.
