Need help with my weeping Japanese maple. - Knowledgebase Question

North Bend, WA
Question by kellermama

How do I trim the leaves, that are touching the ground, on the bottom of my weeping Japanese maples? The trees will also need to be moved, as we planted them too close to the house. When is the best time to do this, and are there any special instructions?
Thank you so much for your help!!

Winter, when you rmaples are dormant, is the best time to move them. As for pruning, you should be able to shorten the branches without harming your tree. For a more natural look, prune each branch at a different length (rather than pruning them all straight across at the same level).

Best wishes with your maples!
