We have many near my home and from observation the tolerate heavy pruning but 
take a couple of years to recover.
I noted a mature Holm Oak severely reduced over a year ago and I will go and 
take a photo of it as it is now.
Is not recovery of any tree down to % of reduction BS 3998?

Our one mile avenue of Holm Oak were severely pruned back in the 80's to 
overcome issues by Mr Barrel! 
Have made a full recovery although many now have Ganoderma in the buttresses.
If anyone is interested I have documented a series of photos of the avenue.

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.
