Oak Tree lost giant limb?? Is it the weather?
As I was sitting here looking out my window, a huge tree limb fell off of one of my tall oaks out back! It is a healthy tree, residing in a ravine of woods. The ravine gets alot of water and stays moist, even in this heat and drought, most all of the trees back there are just beginning to show the yellow leaves that are occuring all over my town.
What would cause the limb to break off and fall like that? Could it be lack of water, the hot weather? The leaves are green and glossy. It shows no sign of disease....
Any one know?
