Q: I have been told that variegated Norway maple trees are a
hybrid and that their variegated leaves will revert back to normal Norway
maple leaves if the tree is not pruned properly.
Is this true? I have
a few variegated maple trees that are half variegated and half regular so
I have assumed that it is true.
When you are pruning, be sure to remove any dead, broken or crossing/rubbing
branches at the same time.
Proper pruning is one of the most beneficial things you can do for trees,
and is part of a complete care program that includes watering during
extended dry spells (more than 2 weeks without sufficient rainfall) and
