Hi all, I am quite new to gardening and have noticed that my tree is getting a bit out of control. We are in a new home and it is our first year with this tree. How/where can I cut some branches so I can make it a bit smaller, but not hurt or kill the tree?
The tree is about 4 feet high and the branches are quite thin.

thank you

What kind of tree is it?

It should not hurt to prune out a few branches....just be careful not to over prune.
