Shrinking Orange and Lemon trees
We have a dwarf orange tree and a full size Meyer Lemon tree. In the past six months we noticed both trees shrunk at least a couple inches. We know this because they are both up against a fence that is not shrinking. We suspect gophers, but both trees were planted in full gopher cages or wire, but we do not see any signs of gopher activity.
