Pruning Fig Tree to Encourage Fruiting

Anonymous added on May 17, 2014 | Answered

I trimmed my fig tree first time last fall. Left 4 main wood stalks with some side shoots - height approx. 5-6'. Leaves coming out all over AND lots of shoots from the bottom. Only way I ever saw a fig previously was to let it have its way. Do I keep cutting the shoots off? They are lush and green. Tree about 4 years old, never had figs. How do I encourage fruit?
