Keeping Citrus Trees Low





My tangerines last fall shot up like lemon trees - a dozen to twenty

shoots two or three feet high. The trees are eight years old and are

loaded with bloom and some of the shoots have buds and bloom clear to

the top. Some shoots have no bloom. What should I do with these shoots?

Cut them back like lemons or let them remain?



You must shorten the shoots if you desire to have a low tree. This will

cause their branching and it will be necessary, therefore, to remove

some of the shoots entirely, either now or later, in order that the tree

will not become too compact.
