50' sycamore tree

Asked April 23, 2017, 5:24 PM EDT

Why is tree dropping branches that look cut off. Branches are 9" up to 4' long. All leaves look heathy including ones on falling branches.

If the branches look cleanly cut at an angle then it is probably squirrels. They will cut off branches for several reasons, usually though to build nests. If the cut end does not look like a clean cut it could be some natural shedding that the tree is going through.
