    When you say prune what do you want to achieve with the tree at the moment? You can coppice the tree right down to just above ground level but that might not give the result you're after. Coppicing gives quite bushy regrowth and is useful for creating stems for bean poles and increasing the nut harvest but if you want to keep it as a tree then it needs a different approach.
    A great library has something in it to offend everybody.
