Citrus trees need lots of sunshine and lots of water to grow and produce fruit. I'd start by pruning away any dead branches (before they fall) and then feeding and watering the tree on a regular basis. There are special citrus food fertilizers and they are normally applied 3-4 times a year. Follow the directions on the package for amounts and frequency (which varies depending upon the size and age of the tree). Water your tree deeply once each week during the spring and summer months. Hope you see some improvement soon!
