Howdy all, Have a client who has a row of 100 year old oak trees down his driveway way about 15 of them that have taken a big hit during a recent storm. Many of the trees have up to a third of the canopy snapped out and hung up in them. The hangers don’t pose any immediate danger to people or property. Generally speaking the best time to prune them is in winter when they are dormant, however it is mid summer here. Is the best action to remove hangers and prune stubs immediately to prevent disease and decay from entering the wounds or wait till the leaves fall.
