When you spot a branch that is not in the right place, not at the correct angle, or is not a permanent branch, it is best to remove it as soon as possible. A branch the size of your thumb will leave a wound the size of a quarter coin that will heal quickly with a callus. If you wait a few years, that cut could create a wound the size of a soda can, which can take two or more years to close. Additionally, all the wood and foliage that the tree grew and that you have now removed could have been directed to the growth that would have built the long-term structure of the tree.
In general, light, routine pruning to remove weak, dead or diseased branches can be done at any time of the year with little effect on the tree.
