Spring is the best time to prune your smoke tree. You can prune the branches back by a little, or a lot. If you decide to remove an entire branch, cut it back to the branch collar on the trunk. Don't leave nubs. You can expect new growth from below the pruning cuts - sometimes two branches where there used to be one. Hope this clarifies things for you.
