My Aeonium keeps growing taller and taller Can I cut the stem and will it shoot out again

On plant Aeonium arboreum



Yes, it will shoot out again, though it's probably not the best time of year to do it.
The growth will be slowing down now, the best time would be spring or summer. You could re-pot the cut off stems in gritty compost to make new plants, or even take a flower head with small amount of stalk and pot it up. Is it in a pot or in the garden? If in the garden, it'll need to come in before the winter.
