Trimming oaks


Recommended Posts

WHen pruning oaks, the months to avoid are april, may and june. Also, red oaks are much more sensitive to oak wilt than other oaks.

I would question your need for pruning an oak this time of year just because even though the danger months are past, that doesn't mean there isn't the possibility for other problems such as borers, heat/drought stress etc.

If you need to prune it now, remove only what you need and focus on making proper pruning cuts. Don't worry about applying anything to the wounds.
