Q.How Much Should I Prune This?

I found this plant suffocating under 20 years of leaves and roots and vines. Can it be saved?

A good rule of thumb is to only prune up to a third of the plant back during a season. This will give it a fresh start and, depending upon what it actually is, you may see some growth from the pruning.
