Now is the time to consider pruning oak trees. That’s according to Dale Miller at the Marion County Extension Office. Miller says that while it may seem early, pruning oak trees now rather than later makes them less likely to catch oak wilt disease. Miller says that it’s best to try to prune branches before they get to be an inch in diameter. Miller recommends the three-cut method, which minimizes damage near the trunk.
