Pruning Orange Trees


Anonymous added on September 11, 2012 | Answered

I live in south Ga. and have an orange tree that is approximately 8 yrs. old and has never been trimmed or pruned. It is getting quite large, 20 ft tall and 15 ft in diameter. My question is, at what stage of growth or time of the year should I trim this tree?

Pruning the orange tree for shape is not necessary. However, you should remove any branches that are a foot or less from the ground. In addition, remove damaged or dying branches once they are noticed.
