Re: Lime trees - Knowledgebase Question

Thanks so much for your answer about pruning my lime trees. How far up should I prune? I am in Houston, Texas if that makes any difference. Also, should I prune if they have fruit? One has fruit and the other has flowers?
Thank you,
Lisa

Lisa,

You can cream of those lime trees as high as you wish. However we generally prime them just high enough to get the lower limbs off of the ground, or out of our way. If they are producing fruit I would wait until after harvest to prune them. However you can prune branches with fruit if you need to do now without harming the tree at all.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
