Scenario I have a large conifer (not sure which model!!) right on the corner of the front of my house, that is now probably I'd say about 25' tall. The height I have no worries about, but it is spreading in girth and has started to block the sunlight to the new double glazed bay window we had installed a few years ago. I want to trim this back a little so that we get the full daylight coming in to the lounge again but I don't want to cause damage the tree so that it dies etc. Is it possible to hack off branches from appropriate places on conifers without causing longer term damage to them? I have petrol hedge trimmers and a petrol chain saw - so actually doing the job isn't going to be a problem - I just want to be assured I am not going to kill the tree by so doing. Does anyone have any advice for me please...? Cheers.
