How to prune a cordyline

United States Us

I have 16ft cordyline that needs a good pruning, if I cut the trunk at say 6ft will it shoot or die ? and when is the best time of year to do the deed



It will shoot, you probably get about two or three shoots. Best time for these operations is always winter, but mine were in the tropics and I didn't look at the calendar, just did it. Not long after the shoots appeared.
