What Should I Do About My Fig Tree

Theuer98 added on June 2, 2014 | Answered

My big mature fig tree that I've had here for years is not producing leaves at the top of the tree. The bottom is producing plenty of green leaves roughly 6ft high. What should I do? Trim off the top or leave it till after it fruits?
