  I prune summer or dormant When and if I want. There is one exception! 
Never prune a Walnut when dormant, only when in full growth. They will bleed 
for the longest time, I do mean long.
   Before I had read this I had cut a low hanging 8 inch diameter limb from 
a Carpthian walnut when it was still dormnet. It bled well into summer, but 
it did survive.
