FIR TREE PRUNING and shaping, or not???
We have a few fir trees in the back garden and the front which are too tall and stopping light. We had a 'tree surgeon' call to give an estimate for cutting these trees. (ouch)! Anyway, I was concerned that the trees would end up looking ugly, like a crows nest and asked if they could be shaped, but sadly not. I am worried after paying out the money that they look horrendous - but on the positive side I will have more light in the garden! Does anyone have any advice. The front trees are Leylandii x 3. One of the back garden trees is a tall blue fir with lovely small blue cones - he's handsome and I'm concerned about his future look.
