Water Oak Trees – Branches and Leaves Falling

Q: I have several old water oak trees. Big chunks of branches and green leaves are falling.

A: Big oaks commonly lose “tufts” of green branches in early summer after rainstorms. Trees put on a lot of lush growth in spring. Now, they lose some of the poorly attached leaves and twigs in preparation for the heat of summer. It’s not usually a problem.
