I have a very large spruce tree in my yard. I would like to trim it and shape it. I know there is a proper time to do this. What/when is the proper time to prune/shape this tree?

In most cases it is very difficult for a homeowner to manage such a task safely, particularly when a tree is truly outgrowing its space. I would suggest you contact a professional arborist for assistance and, if the tree is very overgrown, possibly consider replacing it with something with a more appropriate mature size.
