Our lime tree had grown very large and was creating far too much shade in our small patch and as they don't react well to pruning it was time to go, the lemon tree is due for the same fate once the lemons on it are ready. New versions will be bought and planted in the front lawn where they can grow unhindered in full sun. Citrus are closed canopy trees, the bark can be sunburnt when pruned and opened up apparently. You live and learn.
