You can prune those branches off in late spring or early summer (May or June in the Phoenix area). Some trees, such as birch, dogwood, elm, honey locust, maple, and walnut exude excessive sap from the wound when pruned in late winter or early spring. Sap flow does not hurt the tree. If you prune in late spring, summer, or fall you will minimize sap flow. Best wishes with your trees.
