Q.Can I Prune A Vitex Tree In May Without Harming It? Can I Cut It Back 1/2?

The Vitex tree has been planted in this spot for 10 years. I usually prune it before it leafs out. Late this year. I live in Southern California.

I am located in Dallas and in the rare occasion that I prune Vitex, I try to prune before May because May is a very warm month here and pruning will trigger plants to produce new growth, something I try to avoid starting in May. But if you are only removing dead wood, May is fine.
