Can someone help me with figuring out what type of tree this is and how to prune it? Right now it's a bit of a big blob and really heavy on top.

Thanks!

Have you ever seen blooms on it? I'm thinking some kind of Acacia, but there are about 160 species to sort through. Second guess would be Podocarpus. Hopefully someone better than me will chime in.

Thanks Carol - it doesn't bloom. I think you're right that it's a Podocarpus.
