Magnolia needs a haircut

Because of its position it is very necessary to prune my magnolia tree. When would be the best time



You could do this now, as it has finished flowering. Cut out what you need to remove and then thin out the shoots that grow back. Just leave a few well placed new shoots otherwise the shrub will look odd with a 'witches broom' of new growth.
