    dead branches

    I have a red bud tree that is ithink somewhere between 15-20 yrs old and I noticed quite a few dead branches @ random locations is this normal for this kind of tree or does it have some kind of disease?

    Also, I live in Ft. Worth TX what zone am I in?

    It's hard to say exactly why this is happening, but you should prune them off with a clean, sharp pair of shears. You won't have to wait for the correct time since dead wood can be removed at any time of the year.

    Hi Tree Hugger,

    Here's a site to show how to make the pruning cuts.

    Here's a zip code zone finder.

    When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.
