Yes, this is what I do. I'd say I give a trail trim every 3 months or so.
Brush the tail out really well first, then, I make a fist around the tail, run it all the way down to the bottom (to ensure I have all of the hairs in line) and snip a few inches off in a straight line (almost like you see the hair dresser cutting human hair, except they use their pointer and middle finger to hold the hair together, not their fist).
