Can I/How do I cut back this tree?

4 years ago

Is this an Arborvitae? I have 2 right by my front door. I was told when I bought them that they wouldn’t get too tall, but they have grown quickly and one is butting against our roofline and both trees have growth that no longer “hugs” itself so branches are bumping into other plants/home. I don’t want to hurt the trees, but is it ok to take some growth off the top and sides? TIA! :)
