While it sounds like your tree may be in need of some pruning at the top to remove the older, unproductive growth, if you can wait, I would. Pruning after it has started blooming and leafing out makes it susceptible to disease. If you need to prune it now, it will most likely be ok, but just keep an eye on it and treat any problems that might happen quickly.
