    Dead branches can be pruned at any time.

    Any other pruning should be done when the tree is dormant, early spring or winter.

    Adding a slow release fertilizer in the spring will help the tree get going. You can even use a tree fertilizer spike.

    If it has been dry I would increase watering and make sure that it is a deep watering. Shallow watering does more harm than good.
    Adding 2 to 3 inches of hardwood mulch will help with moisture retention.
