2. Yes, wait until LATE fall


After the leaves have turned and the sap is not running. Fresh cuts emit sap when the sap is running, and the sap attracts beetles. Leaves turn color when the sap stops running, so cuts are mostly inert. Don't wait too late, because once the leaves have fallen off it's hard to tell which branches are dead.
