The Q&A Archives: Pruning Citrus Trees

Question: Thank you for your prompt response on my navel and honeybell more question. What time of year is the best time to prune and shape the fruit trees ?

Answer: I prune mine right after I've harvested all the fruit but before they begin to flower again. December or January are good months to prune. If you have only a few errant branches you can prune them off now but if you want to do an overall trimming, prune in winter or wait until just before new spring growth begins.
