What to do with Fig Trees with dead tips

trout72(6)May 22, 2009

The tips of my fig trees are dead and have no growth, how should i go about pruning these if at all. And by the pictures is there anything else i should be doing to help these trees fruit. One is a Celeste and the other is a Violette de bordeaux. I love this forum.

trout 72, cut down all the dead branches and everything will be fine.
Good luck

Thank You Maria, i did cut off the dead part of the tips and it seemed to stimulate fig production. There are figs all over the trees now. I am very excited. Thank you
