Question: Is it possible to prune an Eastern Hemlock and keep it around 3-5 foot tall and not too wide?

Yes, but it will not look natural.

RE: eastern hemlock

If you're still considering the eastern hemlock, please remember that they are susceptible to the hemlock woolly adelgid and will have to be sprayed a few times a year (a horticultural oil will work) for control. These little insects from Asia are responsible for the decline of hemlock stands throughout the Northeast U.S.
