When and How Do You Prune a Japanese Maple Tree?

Zone 8 | heart2 added on January 7, 2012 | Answered

For the most part, my three year old Japanese maple looks pretty symetrical, but there are a few inner "branches" that are several feet higher than any others on the tree. It does love where it is and has grown pretty fast in the time I have had it and considering the size I purchased.

Pruning for form is best done in late summer or early fall. Simply cut away any unsightly branches and shape it as desired.
