Hi everyone!!!

New to this but very enthusiastic about getting into gardening.
My question is How and when to prune a frig tree?
It was planted about 5 year ago and about 7 to 8 Ft from a baby (dwarf) Magnolia; now the fig tree is growing like crazy and overtaking the magnolia. Or should I move the magnolia tree?? (about 10 Ft tall)
I'll attach a picture for you to see what I'm dealing with. You can see the fig tree and to the left of it you can barely see the magnolia overtaken by the fig tree.

I figure you'll need to know I live in Ga.

Thanks in advance for your help.
