Healthy and Symmetrical Japanese Maple

We produced a self-help video a year ago entitled ‘How to Prune a Japanese Maple.’  ( The end of the 3 minute video shows before and after shots.  We thought you’d like to see how the tree was doing now.  So here it is, the second year after an aggressive pruning.  Of course this tree is the beneficiary of two very favorable climate years for trees, and it likes this spot very much!  So it could use another trim this winter vs. the third year.  But notice the symmetry and the health of the tree.  With the knowledge you obtain from the video, you can do the same for your Japanese Maple tree!
