Fig huh? Go figure. (Pun intended) I got two little clumps of Fig right outside of my window, maybe eight inches at the base but grows more like a large bush with multiple limbs. I dont know the exact species, I am 20 plus years out of my last dendrology class. The stuff goes thru a stage when it smells like cat urine, catch me about then and I might pay you to remove it! Chipper and bag it huh? Fair thought, buddy has like a 20" chipper that wouldn't even slow down on something that small but I would think that the chips would be too small. (Kind of strings some types of woods)
I have given a little thought to propagating by cuttings these trees for the fruit (Not that these are really great producers and kepping the birds away is impossible) But, if the wood has value I may try it sooner. I think that the wood produced would be more like sticks and limbs because there isn't much of a trunk on these trees. I generally don't like to use much bark for smoke making, but hey, I haven't tried to smoke with Fig, Yet!
