You can prune a fig back to nothing

I let mine grow a single node each year. It fruits fine. The biggest challenge with figs is to keep the birds off it and the fruit at an acceptable height. At this rate this tree will take 20 year to get 8ft tall. Perfect. Just make sure to pull out all the ground shoots, about three times a year.
