We have two very large Pecan trees that seem to be dropping a lot of limbs. They are planted fairly close and hang over the back of the house. Just yesterday a very large limb fell and nearly hit the house. We are concerned that they will drop a huge limb and hit the house or cause other damage. Could the trees be diseased? What should we do?
Reduction pruning would be recommended in order to reduce the possibility of future limb failures. It is unlikely that the tree is diseased and the branch failures are most likely a result of heavy fruit production by the pecans this year. The best advice would be having a certified arborist assess the overall health of the tree and make the proper recommendations for the trees on your property.
