Pruning Fig Tree

Zone 8-9 | Anonymous added on March 15, 2016 | Answered

I have a fig tree about 5 feet tall with only 2 branches on it, with small branches growing off the 2 branches. It's a tree and not a bush. Can I cut the tree down to about 1 foot tall to produce a bush instead of a tree with 2 branches? It's an evergreen fig tree and has been in our yard for about 2 summers. Thanks, Chris
