Gall mite help

I've just discovered that a New Zealand native lacebark in my garden is infested with gall mites. I can find lots of information online about how to eradicate them (pesticides or pruning and burying the galls) but only for the northern hemisphere, recommending March for pruning. I'm in NZ so this obviously won't apply. I do have lots of new growth on the healthy parts of the tree, and this page says to do it when the tree is dormant. Is the benefit greater than the risk in this case if I prune it now?
