Prune when the tree is dormant. Right before buds start to develop. You will need a pair of pruners, loppers, and maybe a saw. Cut any twigs, or branches that cross into each other. You want to try and cut any growing far downward to maintain an upright shape. All cuts you make should be cut at an angle. Or you can hire someone to do it for you. Answer

DO NOT PRUNE WHEN DORMaNT!

it is a common misconception made mostly 'cos farmers cut trees in winter but they do that not because its the best time for it but because they don't have enough time to prune in summer. best times to prune would be early spring and after you picked the fruit. early spring pruning is mostly for tree shape design like the style described by the former answer while after picking pruning is meant to remove suckers and open the tree for sunlight which will improve the differentiation to fruit next year.

pruning while dormant hurts the tree more, causes slow healing, increases susceptibility to disease and can increase the chances of mortality by up to 30%

White pines don't need to be trimmed. You can trim off lower branches as the trees grow but leave enough branches to support the trees health.

You can trim trees anytime of year except Spring. Spring is not good because of the moist cool nights this helps with the onset of diaseases.

The best time to trim a tree is when it is dormant. The fall or winter is a good time to improve the health of your tree by trimming away dead growth and branches.

You can trim tree branches overhanging your property to your property line. If you need to trim farther than that, you must get permission.

Unfortunately, the only way to get rid of them is the trim the trees they are using to climb up there. They can jump about 4 feet so you have to cut them back or trim them shorter then the roof line.

If they overhang your property, yes you can trim them. It would be best to discuss this with your neighbor first if possible, but it is not required. Never forget the prunings belong to your neighbour and must be offered back to them.
