Lop Sided Korean FIr Tree

I have a mature Korean FIr Tree in the garden, which is very healtthy.

As some of its' branches overhang the lawn, the grass having died in this area, I  decided to remove some of these branches in order to remedy the situation.

I cut them back, leaving  about two feet of bare branch from the bark. I now have a 'lop-sided tree, with bare branches on one side and healthy flourishing branches on the other.

Please advise if, in time these will replenish themselves and what remedial work I should take, i.e feeding etc. to encourage said growth..!!

I did consider removing the tree, but it does provide a lovely feature in the garden ( or I should say, did, prior my pruning !!)

Thanks very much

    The branches will not regrow. I'd take the stumps off back to the trunk, and see what it looks like then

    Verdun's got a very valid point.  The whole crown could be raised.  There was a good item on this on The Beechgrove Garden last week.  Hope you've got i player.image
