Yes, but winter is better. You can put special stuff on the cut branch to keep infection out, but I think that's gone out of fashion now because it doesn't really offer much protection. Make the cut as close to the trunk as possible without cutting into the stem collar. The cut will be on a bit of an angle not straight down.
At least that's what I remember, I've never really done much except hacking off dead bits myself though.
