Canker on Prunus

I now think my Prunus serrulata 'Kiku-shidare-zakura has canker, as there is a gummy ooze on some branches. Do I cut them out now or wait until June? Mary Catherine, Blackrock, Co Cork Posted: 31/03/2017

It may have gum disease, but there is nothing can be done about that. It makes little difference to pprune now or in June. June is slightly better.
