When a tree is shaped by cutting off its dead or unwanted branches and  leaves it is called pruning a tree. It is a form of maintaining a plant. 
 
The best time to prune a tree depends on its type and blooming season still it is best to prune them when they are dormant which usually is from fall to early spring.
