Hi Sharon:

There is an abundance of information on the Web that has been published by university Extension specialists and state / federal agency professionals.

Here is a link to an excellent guide assembled by the US Forest Service:

Due to oak wilt concerns, prune only from late October to early March.

Best, Jay
