2. another help with tree identification please. it is in my back garden. its quite a common tree but i dont know much.

3. for above tree, how do i prune it. as u can see from photo, its growing wayward and i want to cut some of it back. however some "leaves" on same branch are old and brown as u can see in photo, while the visible leaves are green. so if i cut those off, i will be left with a horrible looking brown leaves...i hope this makes sense..
