Rubber Tree House Plant

My plant is about 2-3 years old and has grown to the ceiling! Can I ‘top’ it, or what is the best way to control the height? It is a single trunk with no branches, just leaves all the way up.

u can cut it anywhere on the plant but wear gloves as the sap can cause skin irritation, u will need to stick a piece of a napkin on the cut as the sap will ooze everywhere.the pieces u trim off can be stuck in soil and may root. i dont suggest pruning until spring when the warm sun encourages new growth but it can be done now if really needed.
