Any time you move a potted citrus tree from indoors to out (for example in the summer) or from outdoors to in (to overwinter the tree inside) it is normal for the tree to drop leaves. Once the tree has adjusted to the move, new leaves will begin to grow. This reaction does not harm the long-term growth of the tree.
