It is best to avoid pruning winterberry hollies, except to remove whole branches for cut flowers or other decorating. Regular  pruning or cutting back, however, will impact the number of flowers and the quantity of fruit that the plant sets. Little pruning should be required, though very old branches can be removed in early spring if they are no longer producing vigorous growth. 

According to the Humane Society of America, ilex berries can be toxic to pets. This is means that the plants are generally identified as having the capability for producing a toxic reaction.
