Q.Oak Limbs Falling Off

Anonymous added on April 22, 2011 | Answered

We have a live oak that was planted as a baby about 15 year ago. Since then we have limbs that fall off the tree where the limbs meet the branch. Is this nomal or should we seek further help? These limbs are about three to four inches in diameterĀ and they have live leaves on them.

You may want to seek the advice of an arborist who specializes in these trees. A few branches falling now and then should not be a concern, but this does not sound normal. It could be suffering from a disease of some sort.
