  1. # see what's out there
  2. git remote show origin
  3.  
  4. # remove the remote branch 'branch-name'
  5. git push origin :branch-name
  6.  
  7. # see what branches are only on local and no longer tracked
  8. git remote prune origin --dry-run
  9.  
  10. # run again without --dry-run to actually prune the local branch
