Large oak tree leaves
Some 12 months ago we had a large oak tree in our garden seriously pruned.
Now that the season's leaves are falling, we have noticed that some of the leaves, rather than being the usual 8cm in length are around 22cm long.
Is this as a result of the pruning as the energy of the tree growth is going into fewer leaves, or is it due to the unseasonal weather we have experienced this last year?
We live some 15 miles NW of London and I apologise for the somewhat non-technical description of the issue!
