Preserving two big beautiful Oaks #806108

Asked August 13, 2022, 5:57 PM EDT

Greetings! We have two lovely oaks, a white and a red, which are in need of a trim but I don't want some local just hacking away at limbs. I really want to preserve their already long-lived life for our nine year old son. Is there anyone that you would recommend or would you be willing to send your students out on a field trip to learn how to properly trim-to-preserve? (Dunno if that's even a thing.)

Hello Marti
You may search for certified arborists by zip code at the International Society of Arboriculture website 

http://www.treesaregood.org

A certified arborist is a professional who has taken training in care, diseases, pests and passed certification tests. 
The safest time to prune oaks is when the leaves have fallen and there have been  one or more hard frosts. But, call now to line up your appointment.

There are no student programs that  visit private residential property.
