is it alright to prune conifers now i have a lot of large conifers and have been given a good price for the job but have never had them cut this early before



Now is a good time to prune conifers. What type are they? Remeber that the removed limbs do not grow back.

By 'prune' do you mean their annual haircut? If so then no it is far too soon, this needs to be done July/August time. Cutting them now will simply encourage greater growth. If it is to remove limbs etc. then, as Kildermorie says, this is a good time.
