"Pruning is a necessary part of maintaining the health and appearance of oak trees. It can remove dead or diseased wood, improve appearance, promote new growth, and allow more sunlight and air to reach the inner parts. However, it's important to prune oak trees correctly to avoid damaging them.

When pruning oak trees, you should only remove branches that are dead or so low that they're in the way. Do not leave stubs when pruning. Instead, prune them back to the bark swell at the base of the branch and leave a clean cut. This will help the tree heal faster and prevent disease.

Live oak tree branches are very unlikely to break on their own. However, if you notice any branches that are crossing or rubbing against each other, they should be removed. When cutting branches, it's important to use sharp, clean pruning shears. This will help prevent the spread of disease and pests.

It's important to note that live oaks are slow to recover from heavy pruning. Therefore, pruning should be done judiciously. For young oaks, pruning should be limited to dead or broken branches.

It's also important to avoid using sealants when pruning oak trees. Research has shown that it's not necessary and can actually slow down the healing process
