Q.orange tree

I planted a seed from an orange and now the plant is a tree of 6 feet tall. Can I plant this outside and leave it for the winter or bring it out just for the summer?

The trees are considered hardy in zones 8-11, though wrapping the tree or providing mulch for additional protection will help during winter if you are in a zone lower than 8, such as zone 7. Also, make sure that it receives plenty of sunlight and is well protected from winds. If it gets lower than 40 degrees F. (actually 50 F. would be pushing it), then you should definitely bring it indoors over winter.
