Prune espalier pear tree
The tree is in its third year after planting. First and 2nd year produced 2-3 pears; there were more blooms, but they dropped off. This season there were 15-20 blooms that began to form pears but they all dropped off before they were big enough to trim. There was quite a bit of new growth this summer which I recently cut back (August). Should I prune again this winter or next early spring, if so how severely should I prune?

I'm going to refer you to several excellent articles that discuss the details of Espalier/trellis training of fruit trees. I think you will find what you need in them.
