In these examples, the use of the word prune means to cut back or trim down or to trim back on or to reduce the quantity or size of something.
Another definition of the word prune has to do with a kind of fruit which is found in nature.
Prunes are usually dark, purple-colored fruits which are very sweet. Prunes are really a type of dried plum. Some people like them fresh and soft, while others prefer them a bit on what is called the "dry side" or dried prunes.

Many farmers or "country folk" will drink prune juice to help relieve various forms of constipation, while others will use teas or eat other fruits such as peaches, grapefruit, or nectarines to also help their digestive systems and lower intestines.
