Should I trim these branches from Red Maple?
This is an October Glory Red Maple, planted in April 08 (I bought it big!) As you can see, one of the lower branches is sticking way out and looks kinda stupid. Should I cut it off, or wait and let it all even out?
Or maybe the branch looking weird doesn't even matter. Should I be trimming the lower branches anyway? Is that just part of the routine as the tree matures? And if so, should I do the bottom two or the bottom four?
Also, is now the time to do it, or should I wait a few more weeks?
