Generally fruit tree pruning should be done in the spring after all chance of freezing is gone and BEFORE the plant starts to put out new vegetation. Yes it is a very slim window, usually about a week or two at best for the optimal time. But any time in spring can work.

It just creates a longer risk of the tree having exposed wounds.
