The best time to prune trees and shrubs is when they are dormant - late winter or very early spring. So do it now. This old house has a good tutorial so Google how to prune trees and shrubs on www.thisoldhouse.com. Also Google how to prune Japanese maples and you will find lots of videos. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
