When Do I Prune an Acer Tree?

Answer

Acer is a genus of trees that belong to the Aceraceae family. It contains about 129 species that are commonly referred to as maple. They are commonly pruned during winter when they are fully dormant. You need to reduce height and width by following long branches back to a side branch and pruning it out at that section.

Every two or three years when the leaves have fallen, prune out any diseased or damaged wood. If the central part of the tree looks overcrowded, prune some of the stems and smaller branches, but maintain the overall shape of the tree.
