If the fig's have outgrown their location and you wish to bring them down to a more manageable size read over the linked thread. There is also an older UGA fact sheet with some info about pruning figs which you can find by doing a Google search on "figs uga".

But to answer your question, you will want to prune these in late winter, say the last of February.

Here is a link that might be useful: Turn A Fig Tree Into A Fig Bush

RE: Pruning Fig Trees

Are there any figs on these tress? I am looking for a few gallons of figs to put up for winter. I did nine pints a few weeks ago but, am down to two left after family scarfed them up during our holiday weekend this past week.

RE: Pruning Fig Trees

There might be and I will have to look.
