PRUNING FIR TREEES - IS THIS NORMAL
I've recently bought a house with a considerable number of trees. The previous owner has pruned the fir trees on the side which were providing cover from view. One side has been left with full, green branches, the other side nearest the house has been stripped to the naked trunk. Is this normal? I ask because it doesn't seem so to me but I have seen a number of houses in the area to which the same 'pruning' has been done.
