When can I prune my oak trees?
You can prune your oaks anytime from July 1 through January 31, regardless of temperature, provided all pruning wounds of all sizes on oaks are sealed immediately (within 10 minutes max.)

Routine oak pruning is prohibited from February 1 through June 30 due to high risk of oak wilt infection. Emergency oak pruning may be allowed during this period if the oak is a public safety or property hazard. Call the City Forester at 512-314-7538 to discuss exceptions. More...
