• Pruned Oak Trees resembles a charcoal or crayon drawing. This "rough" impression is usually associated with lithography, but Delavallée achieved a similar effect by covering his etching plate with a soft-ground, laying a sheet of thin paper over it, and drawing through it with a pencil.
• Delavallée conveys the powerful energy of the wind-tossed trees through his use of curving lines and dramatic silhouettes. The print’s dynamic "v-shaped" composition divides the foreground between dark and light.
