How to Prune a Ficus Plant
When trimming a ficus tree, don't top the tree or attempt to reshape the plant into an unnatural shape. The purpose of pruning a ficus tree is to remove dead or crowded branches. For outdoor trees, confine heavy pruning to wintertime. Always use clean gardening shears to avoid spreading disease from one plant to another. The tree may bleed heavily with pruning, and you may wish to wear gardening gloves to avoid any allergic reaction.
