Help with trimming a mature Maple
I have a large maple in my front yard (perhaps 40-50 ft tall).
Last yeat year I did some major trimming to open it up and let more sunlight in and through so that it wasn't killing my lawn below. Took off some of the lower brances as large as 3-4" a their base, and lopped off some of the smaller sub-branches. That worked well. (I hope I did the right thing.)
Now, it is sprouting new shoots from the bare branches again.
Should I leave these until they mature, or cut them off before they get any larger?
