are you allowed to trim/prune a fruit tree?
Are there any limits?

אָסוּר לִקְצֹץ אִילַן מַאֲכָל הָעוֹשֶׂה פֵּרוֹת, (אִילַן זַיִת שֶׁהוּא עוֹשֶׂה רֹבַע הַקַּב זֵיתִים, וְדֶקֶל הָעוֹשֶׂה קַב תְּמָרִים, בבא קמא צ"א) וְהִיא סַכָּנָה. וְאִם הוּא סָמוּךְ לְאִילָנוֹת אֲחֵרוֹת שֶׁחֲשׁוּבִים יוֹתֵר מִמֶּנּוּ וְהוּא מַכְחִישׁ אוֹתָם, וְכֵן אִם צָרִיךְ לִמְקוֹמוֹ, מֻתָּר לְקַצְּצוֹ (יורה דעה סִימָן קט"ז)

It is forbidden to cut down a fruit tree which bears fruit (e. g. an olive tree which produces [at least] a quarter of a kav of olives or a date tree which produces [at least] a kav of dates) because it is hazardous. But if it grows near other trees that are more valuable and it saps their strength, [by depriving them of nutrients] or if you need the space it takes up then, you are allowed to cut it down.

Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

I bought two pairs of Ugg Slippers from Nordstrom.com

 While only one came, I called to see what happened. They told me that one was cancelled as they didn't have it in stock even though you were able to place the order originally.

 So being that I was only able to get one size I had nothing to compare it to, I originally ordered a size 8 and a size 9. (Being as detailed as I can explain the scenario.)
  As that was my original intention to decide which to keep, and which one to return to the store on via mail.

 Now I called and asked to have a shipping label processed for free to return my pair of slippers as I was only sent one and .... Basically to avoid the $5.95 return shipping fee as they made an error on their end by shipping only one item.

 So instead of the representative waiving the 595 fee he went and charged me 5.95 for the return fee, and refunded me the total for the slippers and never sent me the label, which he said he did.
   Now they never refund you until they get the item back, but for some odd reason they refunded me now before receiving the item.

 He did the exact opposite I asked for.

 so my question now is, do I have to still be busy making myself crazy to return it? or being that I got a refund I don't have to bother returning it as it's a tauss akum?

 Now for the few bucks that it's worth, I'm not willing to steal and have it on my head that I did something I shouldn't have.

 What's your guy's opinion?
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Definitely taus akum, you tried to do everything correct but they messed it up. Do you even want the boots if they're the wrong size?
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

I believe according to RMF Tevilla is only needed for something that cooks raw food or is used to eat from.

Both an ice maker and a toaster don't fall under the criteria of something that cooks raw food or is used to eat from.
