We live in Phoenix, AZ. Our ficus trees have been cut back and are showing fair to good growth. Both are exposed to extreme heat near concrete drives, sidewalks and rock landscape. Some growth is burning back; what should we do to protect the growth and bark this summer season? Should we allow the trees to sprout wildly or pull off unwanted growth at the base of the trees? Is it okay to fertilize this late in the season for these damaged trees? Temps are in the low 100's at this time.
