Rubber trees are only hardy to 30 F. If it gets colder than that at all where you live, the tree cannot not be planted outside permanently. You can keep it outside in a container in the summer though. If it is too large, you may want to consider pruning it: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/rubber-tree/prune-rubber-tree.htm
