Trimming bushes

Suburban Chicago, Illinois I have very old bushes (I do not know what kind they are but they are producing little red "fruit" at this time) that have grown too tall. They need major trimming. Should this be done in fall or spring? Thank you

Hi, Prune these plants in the late winter before the plants sprout in the spring.
