When all the leaves fall off in Winter and your tree is going dormant can be a good time to tweak those branches. Wiring is easier and you can see the "bones" of the tree much easier.

In this video, Mike wires a Japanese maple and discusses some of the techniques he uses. To quote Mike, "It may be ugly, but it gets the job done!"

Just remember, when you are wiring, be careful how hard you bend and press the tree when you are shaping it. Sometimes it seems like the tree will never break, then -snap- it breaks like a toothpick.
