My ginko is growing straight up, I would like it to branch out a bit and fill out. Is it possible to prune my ginko? Can I cut off the top middle shoot and will it branch out from there?

Generally, you will want to prune at the point that you want it to start branching. This would generally be about 3 to 6 feet tall. So anywhere between here will be fine to cut. Just leave yourself room to work in the tree, as it can get rather bushy the lower that you trim.
