Fertilizing: You can apply a granular fertilizer formulated for evergreens in the springtime.
Pruning: Pruning is hardly ever needed, but you can definitely prune it to any shape you’d like. It responds very well to pruning. Do so in the early springtime. If you’d like to do some rejuvenation pruning, remove a few of the thickest branches every three years or so.
