Mediteranean Stone Pine
Is it possible to cut back a Stone Pine tree and will it grow back from 'dead' wood? I have a need to control the size of one I have in my garden.

A Stone Pine can grow 40 to 80 feet tall and 20 to 40 feet wide.
Broken and dead branches can be pruned any branches that need to be removed to help shape the tree. Make the cuts at the trunk.
From my research trimming or topping the tree will result in multiple branching.
