For example, the maple does not tolerate any pruning at all. Whether small or larger species, when the maple is cut back, it can respond to it with the dying of branches.

This is the most important reason for considering where in the garden the maple should be planted. He needs a location where he can stand and grow as he pleases. Even the low and short species show such behavior.
Anyone who has taken over a garden with maple, can pay little attention to it, the tree is now there and if an important reason a cut must be made, that's no different. Now at least the following points should be considered, so that the maple can survive this procedure as well as possible:

  • Coat interfaces with tree wax to prevent disease.
