With all this great advise on here today I figured I’d ask the Monkey collective. I’ve got a standard Japanese Maple, Orangeola if I remember correctly. It is starting to look a little bushy and too shrubby for my liking. I want to trim the bottom to make it more tree like. It is going on it’s second season in the ground. Is there a preferred time or method to trim these? I am in N.C. if it matters.
