Hi, I'm Daniel Penselin, and this is how to prune your oak trees. The things you will need: hand pruners, gloves, and safety goggles. The first step is to get the proper tools. These will largely depend on the size of branch you will be pruning. For small branches, use hand pruners that look like large scissors. The next thing to do is learn when to prune. For oak trees, the recommended pruning time is November through March. Now, being pruning your oak tree. Remove branches that are growing too low or could potentially break and hurt someone, as well as branches that are in the way of another branch. And finally, make cuts, especially for dead branches parallel to the main branch. And that is how you trim your oak trees.
