Hi Michelle,

Yes, you can prune but it's best done in late winter if you have alot of branches to remove. If you prune in fall, do it early if you are in a cold zone so the tree will have time to heal.

To my knowledge the bark should not be peeling. I don't know where you live, but this site is located in the UK and appears to have been abandoned by the folks that started it. I try and answer as many questions as I can, but I'm not a certified arborist, just an enthusiast. You might want to ask at this US site about the bark. Do let them know where you live. If they can't help you, let me know and I'll try and find someone who can.
