Laceleaf Japanese Maple expert wanted

Asked June 10, 2020, 5:26 PM EDT

I live in Metro Detroit (Bloomfield Hills) and am very interested in finding someone to teach me how to trim my two laceleaf Japanese Maple trees. They are very old mature tress but are in great condition and we want to give them more of a shape. Can you recommend someone? Thank you!

I’m sorry, we do not recommend retailers or brands. I think your best bet is to hire a certified arborist, a professional who has taken training in care, diseases, pests and passed certification tests. He/she will come to your property and go over the trees with you. At the same time he/she can examine the trees for any health issues that are present. When calling, explain what you need, and that you are interested in learning how to prune them. Find certified arborists by zip code here—-
