Do You Prune Dead Branch on Fig Tree
The tree is only a foot tall. It looked dead. It had one brown branch, then green leaves sprung out from the bottom of plant, but there is one branch that is brown in the middle. Do you prune it or leave it?

You need to determine if it is really dead. Scratch the bark on it and if you see green beneath the bark, it is still alive and you can leave it. If it is not green and the branch is brittle, it is dead and can be removed.
