Q.

Norfolk Island Pine tree house plant

Zone Willmar, MN | Anonymous added on March 18, 2019 | Answered

My Norfolk Island Pine tree has very long branches causing an uneven look. Can I trim back the branches that are super long, or do I just need to leave them alone. I have repotted it once since Christmas 2016, because it's growth. It's now in a 10" pot, but some of the branches are super long compared to others.

It is usually not a good idea to prune these much, if ever at all. This will change the shape of the tree completely, and can make it unmanageable in the future. They are naturally tall trees out of container, but they will still look lanky when they are young. This will fill out in time.
