Pruning on sugar maples will induce sap flow especially late winter, early spring. this may be ok if you're actively collecting sap for syrup production, but then that is a minor drilled hole. Maples are also susceptible to various insect and disease problems from Spring through Summer. It's recommended that pruning be done as needed in November and December in my zone 5-6 areas and whenever to correct damaged limbs.
