Monkey puzzle

We have a monkey puzzle that is over 20 ft high.  It is just missing the telegraph cables and we'd really like to reduce the height.. Happy to her someone in (Bakewell Derbyshire area). but wondered what the general opinion was

    Time to take it out. You cant take the top out and have a decent shape.  They look silly if you lollipop them.

    Would it be possible to have the cables moved ? Probably too expensive and impractical anyway image

  • There's a Monkey Puzzle near here which has had its top removed ... it looks ridiculous ... sorry, but that's the way it is. image

  • oxymoron, don't do damage, but do some pruning - can't be done
