Answer: While it is possible to prune the tree to fit the space, it's not a job for the inexperienced. If you hire an arborist to trim your pine back to a smaller size, expect to rehire him/her every few years. Your pine can grow 20' tall and 18' wide if left alone. With judicious limb and root pruning you can keep it smaller but it may eventually look out of place, no matter what you do. You might want to think about moving your tree to a larger spot and planting a smaller, slower growing pine. (Mugo is a good choice for small spaces.) Best wishes with your pine!
