    Not to be a prick but have you had any formal tree trimming education? Because from the two pics I saw you have done more damage than good. I bring this up to educate you and others this is not proper pruning. Any other Arborists want to jump in here and back me up I need to get moving can't hang around and quote ISA standards. Here is a link though. http://www.isa-arbor.com/ Sorry dude Good luck

    proper pruning is a bunch of crap because it does not solve any clearance issues. Live oaks are definately over pruned in san antonio. they can hold up to such over zealous pruning providing you seal the wounds to prevent oak wilt, which is a problem down here. i worked for a tree company for a while and am not a jackass as i have a licensed arborist for consulting purposes, my good friend. all trees are different and cannot be pruned the same. i would like you to point out one issue with the pruning shown. im not angry but would like you to substantiate your claim.:) i do almost 5 tree jobs a week and cannot get an arborist license as i am studying for the irrigation test

    pic 1...was growing down to the lawn and was raised to acheive upward growth, deadwood removed suckers cleaned on arms to upper canopy. wounds sealed.
    pic 2...i admit there is some lions tailing but the amount of deadwood to begin with was appaling and i did not want to completely remove those healthy branches. Tree doctors in my part of town would charge a grand to remove dead wood and leave a tree all the way to the ground which is taking advantage of his prestigous title. the way oaks are trimmed in sa stresses the tree and leaves it bare...think my work is to over zealous you should see what the licensed pros put out. if anyone has a pic of a live oak after "proper certified" pruning please share thanks again:waving:

    Is the truck a duramax or gasser? Either way it's a nice truck (but will be nicer if it is a diesel)
