It is generally best to prune during the late winter and early spring, if indeed pruning is done at all. In many cases, pruning will stimulate even more growth! This is a job to be done with great care and skill, especially on a larger and highly ornamental tree such as this. To be honest, I would suggest you consult with a professionally trained arborist rather than tackle this yourself.
