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.,
