Best time to trim tree (acre)

Whens the best time to shape my acre tree in my front garden?

The tree is now full of new buds & leaves but last the tree looked very spindly.

    Lee - I would leave it if it was spindly last year.  I think that you only prune acers if they have outgrown their space - I don't think it invigorates them.

    Preferably do not prune at all, but if you must, prune in winter so they dont bleed.,

    And you've been so busy lately that you haven't found the time
