I have a willow type japenese maple that is just beautiful but.. it looks like a bush. I think I need to prune some of the branches but I am unfamiliar with this tree. Can I prune the underneath branches to get it to grow any taller?
Also there are some crazy branches that are zigging WAY out from the tree itself.
And do I wait until it is dormaint to do so?
Thanks you so much for any info.
