Pruning a Smoke Tree

pkse added on January 22, 2017 | Answered

I have a fairly large smoke tree (bush), about 4 metres high. I wish to cut it back, as it is over a fence and I'm concerned it may overload and break limbs indiscriminately. How hard is it possible to prune? Thank you very much for your help. Peter Gerard.
