I thought I'd share the result of my experiment in rejuvenating some coffee trees. These three trees were stumped sometime around mid-September of last year and became leafless as all their branches had been removed. At that time they were about 6 ft. tall with a stem diameter of around 1.5" at the base. The result: One produced three strong leaders and is looking lush; another produced one strong leader and is looking to become the first to reach the ceiling; the last one was and still is the weakest of the bunch, sending out only modest growth. @pinenut , you may be interested in this; I believe you have some sizable trees as well.
