Know its normal for trees to sprout leaves in the middle of major branch or
trunk during a drought. Thanks, Jang.
Another live oak question in the wild. Last fall, cut back and some down,
some "cedars" - juniper ashe- that were choking out the sunshine from some
live oaks. The majority of these live oaks are reacting the same way.
Sprouting leaves in the middle of major branches and trunk. Did similar 2
years ago around one live oak, first following year, same reaction. Now,
all seems normal. Question is, is this normal? If so, why, as additional
sunshine can hardly be considered a cause of stress?
Sorry, couldn't find answer under dingleberry's weblinks...

call an arborist to come look. Look up Don Gardener. If you can't
find him, call The Natural Gardener and ask them how to contact him.
John Dromgool should know as he has Don on the show frequently. It's
worth every dollar to save your trees from dying. You know around
