Pruning at the top
I have a Fire Dragon Maple planted in the early spring. It is doing quite well and I am thankful.
The issue is the bowl shaped tall leggy branches which appear to be around 4 to 5 feet.
I would like to cut these equally to branch out at the proper height. (for shaping the tree)
I need to know the time to cut and the height to cut from the main stem.
Hope someone knows this. Pruning articles don't seem to address this. THANX !!
