Needled evergreens trimmed into shapes would generally be pruned in spring as new growth appears, trimming just enough to maintain the shape. Some evergreens will continue to grow through the season and these should be trimmed repeatedly as often as needed to keep the shape tidy. DO not cut back into old wood when trimming.
