I bought a house with this dwarf Japanese Maple. I do not know anything about it other than it overhangs the sidewalk and needs pruned. I would like to get it at least 6” to a foot from the ground. There are a few big limbs I am wanting to cut because they are low limbs, but I don’t want any bald spots when it is full this summer. Does cutting limbs promote new growth? Any suggestions on how to do this other than what I am seeing on YouTube? I have another one in the corner of the house that is very small and not growing, it doesn’t get a lot of sun. Should I dig it up and move it to an area with full sun?
