I've got a ficus which dried out this summer. The roots seem to be alive and well - multiple suckers are growing without issues.
This photo was taken a week ago and the suckers continue to grow.
I read that is possible to regrow the tree from one of them as long as it's not grafted. (I don't think it is, the leaves on suckers look the same as the trees next to it)
My main questions are:
Should I cut the old tree immediately, or wait longer?
Should I select one sucker and cut the rest, or is it better to cut the small ones off over time?
Anything else I should pay attention to while trying to revive this tree?
