My Meyer lemon tree has 10 to 15 short branches (4 to 5 inches long) off each branch. The tree is 8 year old. The tree is planted in the ground, about 7 feet tall. I live in southern Florida. How many short branches should I leave?

Remove any crossing branches or dead wood. Meyer lemons shouldn't need much pruning. However, if these are water sprouts, remove them all. Water sprouts are thin shoots that sprout straight out from a branch or trunk. They are nonproductive.
