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.,
