    Pruning a low branch on a young tree

    I planted this tree about 5 years ago and it is doing well, I try to prune it correctly. It is about 6 feet tall. Does the lower branch need to come off? As the tree grows, that limb would not be in harms way of anything, if it would break off. If cutting it is desired, when should I cut it this spring. Before or after the leaves come ? It looks like a maple. Thank-you.
