My lime tree has two main branches. One appears unwell, the other healthy. Should I remove the unwell one?
Fruit and Citrus • Pests
We would suggest checking if there are any borer infestations on the base of the trunk which may affect only one side of the tree. Also try to feed the plant first with 'Yates Thrive Citrus & Fruit Natural Fish & Seaweed+' as a complete plant food, specially developed for boosting healthy grown and yield of juicy fruit in citrus and other fruiting plants.

If nothing works and the branch continues to deteriorate, prune off back to the trunk would be the last adsice.
