I have a Crimson King Maple I planted about 3 years ago, It has one very tall growth, about 15 ft. high, but its not the main branch or trunk of the tree. Can I prune it, and how should I do so to match the other branches?
Thanks for the help!

I would certainly prune this branch anomaly to maintain good crown symmetry. Explain how to do this via the internet forum is a bit more complicated.
Several excellent guides for pruning trees may be viewed at the following websites:
