We have a maple tree and an ash tree near each other. We plan on taking down the ash tree. As we look at the maple tree the ash tree side is not as grown out as the other side of the tree. Our tree trimmer is suggesting to shape the tree so both sides look similar. Make sense to do this? He is planning on coming late August or early Sept.

It is up to you to determine how the tree will look. No tree is completely balanced it is a trade-off between shape and the cost of making it so. The tree will not care so if you like it better shaped then do so. August/September is fine for maples as they will not bleed as much. Nothing needs to be done to the cuts.
