Hi, when can I cut back my Fig Tree, all the fruit has gone now, I didnt get to many, the bees and the birds had a megga feast. The leaves are so heavy, the branches are being pulled down over a public walkway and disturbing the neigbours.



Trim off the bare minimum now if you really need to - hard prune in midwinter, when the plant is dormant.

True! I would just take off what's reaching out and grabbing people, preferably to the branch it came off of, or to an upward-facing side branch. Main pruning as Bamboo says.

How do I say thanks?
