I have been asked to cut an apricot tree quite hard as it is getting too big for the garden. Is this something I could do now and how will it responed to hard pruning. 

ps. no apricots for several years

Not something I've ever encountered so I cheated...

The fact that there have been no fruit for a while is of concern:  I'd suggest a low nitrogen feed at the time of pruning.

I’ve cut my apricot really hard it still live it flowers on one year old wood so maybe a bit late if fruit is required apricot flowers very early during the year some protection from frost is usually required and hand pollinating due to lack of insects
