Older Dwarf Lemon Trees No Longer Produce Fruit

I have two dwarf lemon trees. I had three originally, but one was removed three years ago. The age is undetermined, but greater than 40 years. Originally they had copious fruit, but not after third tree was removed. I tried fertilizer and mulch to no avail. Also, there was a spell of dying back, and paleness of leaves. The leaf coloration is better, and growth is occurring, but still no fruit. Is there a life span to these dwarf lemons? Recommendations?

Since they quit producing when one was cut down, I assume that lemon trees require a male and female tree before they will produce fruit. It is something you might want to check into.

Yes, there are male and female trees of all species. Ask at a tree nursery how to tell if you have 2 of the same sex...you may have to replace the removed tree in order to get fruit.
