Red oak tree with some dead branches
A red oak was planted in my front yard a couple of years ago. From the pic in the link below, you can see much of the top branches do not have leaves, while the trunk has a lot of leaf growth, I assume the tree did this to compensate for the dead growth.
What should I do to this tree so it doesn't end up looking funny? Trim off the dead branches and remove the leaves on the trunk?
