I know this web site and others warn against pruning this type tree. My problem - is the tree had been pruned by the garden center and I Purchased the tree not realizing the problem. As you can see from my photos, the tree has extensive rapid growth since April this year of 8 to 12 foot limbs. This trees beauty is their twisted limbs but, these limbs are not twisted very much. This tree in my opinion must be trimmed.

What advise can others give me. Should I trim it now or wait until winter ???? etc. etc. ??
