The Q&A Archives: Lime and lemon trees

Question: I have cut the limbs on my Lime an lemon trees. They both lost all there leaves because I didn't bring them in before the first frost. Know they look like two Charlie Brown trees. No leaves in sight. Last year the were full of limes. Please Help.

Answer: Unless the branches were withered and brown, they were probably still alive and able to produce new leaves. Since you've already cut them off, the only thing you can do now is watch and wait. If the tree is healthy it will develop new branches. Hope so!
