Pruning Pittosporum begins with cutting off any of the branches or stems that stick out away from the main stem of the plant. Using shears or electric shears, a person could run the shears along the top and sides of the plant in order to create a flat surface. Remove any new shoots that are inside of the main bush in order to maintain the shape of the bush. Remember that this plant can tolerate aggressive pruning so many branches can be removed in a single session.
