Pruning with buds

Is it safe to prune a cherry tree when it already has buds?
Submitted by BHGPhotoContest

Yes, if you don't mind losing some blooms this year. But pruning when the tree is dormant is the best time to prune, so there really isn't much you can do if the tree genuinely needs attention now.
