    Proper pruning will promote further growth, but you need to make sure you do it correctly. Here are some websites on pruning techniques.

    As an addendum to the first answer, I want to warn you that you never want to “top” your tree. Pruning has to be extremely judicious, and you have to be very careful about every brance you cut.

    My favorite pruning guide is below. I recommend reading through it if you want to prune. If you are in doubt, consult your local arborist or garden center.
