On a 3-yr old tree it hasn’t grown any. The trees have very pale leaves. The buggers just will not grow. Can anyone help? Thanks.

Citrus trees need up to 6 years before they are mature enough to produce fruit, so you just need to give it a little more time.

As to the pale leaves, I would suspect a nutrient deficiency. Start using a fertilizing regimen with the tree using a balanced fertilizer.
