I have an old leggy jade tree that has a lot of horizontal growing branches. The stems are thick and woody and are already spilling over the sides of the pot, so there's actually only one or two vertical branches. I'd like to get it bushier and grow more horizontal to fill in the gaps.
Looks like I'll have to be pretty aggressive about pruning it back. What do you guys think? Will pruning the horizontal growing branches encourage it to grow upwards? It's also a bit lop sided and the heavier side is what is in the picture.
