Indian rosewood (Shisham, sissoo tree) typically reaches about 60' in height and width if allowed to grow without pruning. You can prune to control the size and shape but these trees are susceptible to sunscald if you remove too much of the canopy all at once.

The best method is to thin out the canopy by removing crowded or crossing branches and then reducing the height and width of the branches. Try not to remove more than one-third of the live material in any one pruning session.

Good luck with your Indian Rosewood!
