Leaves are falling off our Hamlin and Pineapple orange trees. Is this normal for March and what can we do about it if not.

Your trees should be putting on new growth now so it isn't unusual for some of the older leaves to be shed. Usually they remain deep green when they drop and they normally are shed from the lower and inner parts of the branches. As long as your trees look otherwise healthy, I don't think the leaf drop should be of concern.
