Pruning Fig Trees

You’ll be happy to know that fig trees need very little pruning! Just basic maintenance is all that’s necessary.

NOTE: This is part 6 in a series of 10 articles. For a complete background on how to grow fig trees, we recommend starting from the beginning.

Maintenance Pruning

  • Weak, diseased or dead limbs should be removed each dormant season.
  • Thin the blooms on older fig trees (which grow very little each year) to increase fruit size and to stimulate about a foot of growth per year.
