No formal research as such but they grow like weeds down here on the south 
coast and it doesn't seem to matter how hard you hit them you can't kill the 
damn things!

Subject: Holm oak tolerance to hard pruning

The Arb Assoc state that holm oak shows "poor" tolerance to hard pruning in 
their Guide to Tree Pruning leaflet. Does anyone know of any specific 
research that supports this as my experience generally suggests otherwise? 
Thanks in advance.
