Flowering magnolia trees are not usually pruned except to remove dead wood or tidy up storm damage. The deciduous magnolias bloom early in the spring on the previous year's growth, so any pruning would only be done in late spring after the bloom period to avoid removing the flowering wood. Hope this helps and good luck in the garden!
