Jun 06, There are many situations where you might want to prune a fig tree. The first time you should be doing fig bush pruning is when you first transplant your young fig tree. When a fig tree is first planted, you should trim a fig tree back by about half.
This will allow the tree to focus on developing its roots and becoming well established. It will also help the fig tree grow side branches for a bushier tree. Green Pruning of Fig Trees In summer, renewal pruning or green pruning can be carried out. Although they can be done at any time of the year, they are usually done at the end of August, when the fig tree is barely active due to the high temperatures.
