Sugar Maple-large branch pruning
Hi, I have a sugar maple that is about 25-27 years old. I would like to prune off a large lower branch in order to even out the tree and allow for more sunlight underneath the tree as it has really not grown to that high of a height over time. I would like to know the proper time to prune off the one large branch. I believe I have to wait for the sap to leave from spring. Can I prune it in May, or should I wait until June, or ???
