Kumquat Trees
Q.

cutting back kumquat

Zone Savannah | Maribuchman39 added on August 7, 2015 | Answered

Our kumquat tree that is planted outside is 1-2 feet too tall to reach the fruit. Can we cut the top out of it? If so, how? The tree is about 10 years old and very productive but is blocking the window. We live in Savannah, GA. Thank you.

I would advise against topping your tree as it can permanently damage and disfigure it. Here is an article that will explain how tree topping hurts trees:
