Serviceberry Plants

We were advised to use amelanchier trees as part of a hedge ( probably not the best advice!) They are now five years old and have never been pruned and we wondered do we prune, leave alone, take off every third branch? We're not sure and they have now become entwined with the beech and hawthorn in the hedge. We would be most grateful if you could help. Kind regards Diana Rowland
