While out bush is growing, the branches are falling to the side. Should I prune these off to straight up?
We planted 16 podocarpus 1 year ago, and noticed yellowing on some of the leaves of the branches. What can we do if anything?

You can trim/prune/shape the Podocarpus to achieve the look you desire. One cause of yellowing is is the soil is to alkaline. Have you done a soil test?
Photos of the plant would help you get better answers; also please complete your profile information so everyone can see which climate zone/state/country the Podocarpus is growing.
