Pruning an older jade plant

Zone Hudson Valley, NY (zone 6?) | me added on September 16, 2015 | Answered

I have an older Jade plant. I repotted it this summer but one of the branches is large and hanging down (they are shaped like a y). I think it needs to be cut back, but I am sad about removing an old piece of the plant and I want all parts to thrive. Do you think that if I remove it, I will be able to successfully "re-start" the branch? I don't want to lose any part of the plant.
