You will not want to cut this! You will want to get it into the light. If it is still too cold in your area, you will have to get a horticultural grade lighting fixture of at least 200 watts for the tree to be happy, and have enough light.

This is a very critical point, which will determine the health of your tree for the rest of the year.
