    If you mean can you limit the root growth by trimming the tree, the answer is no. You wouldn't be the first person to have a tree too big for it's surroundings, and to be constantly pruning and cutting back. However, if you can possibly remove the tree, I would recommend replacing it with one of the size you want at maturity. Select a tree that is hardy for your climate zone -- that's what we mean by zone. You can find out about zone here: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/planting-zones/usda-planting-zone-map.htm
    After you select for zone, select for size, available light, and appearance. You can consult with the local Extension Service to help you make such choices; use this site to help you locate one: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/info/what-is-extension-service.htm
    This applies only if you live in the USA, of course, but the same information is available through other sources in other countries.
    Or you could hire a reputable landscaper.
