Hard pruning big buxus
At the estate I work at there is an old (not sure how old, but the trunk is 10cm-15cm and it's about 5m tall) buxus sempervirens that has been neglected over many years and wants cutting back. To cut it back to be in line with the stone wall it sits behind we'd have to cut about 3ft into the foliage, just leaving bare trunk. Will this kill it? And if not, will foliage grow again from the main trunk?
