Pruning Old Citrus Trees


skindivers1 added on February 13, 2017 | Answered

I have a property on Pico in the Azores and there are a number of lemon and orange trees that are very old. Is there any advice you could offer in addition to the RHS link and when posted publicly on this site I got the same answer. I have asked the RHS and gardeninknowhow website and have been provided with the following link, which is useful: http://extension.psu.edu/plants/gardening/fphg/pome/pruning/pruning-a-special-case-renovating-old-fruit-trees I am guessing the trees are at least 50 years old if not older, attached are pictures of the trees, I was wondering if I should open the trees up. Your thoughts and help would be appreciated Thanks Dave
