: I have a 25-30ft. screw pine in my front yard that has disappeared into two neighboring trees. Is there a way to safely crop/trim it by 10 or 15 feet without killing it? It seems such a shame to have such a beautiful plant that's not even seen. Thanks...Steven

Hi Steven,
You would just be butchering your tree if you cut it that way.

Hope this helps,
