In Reply to: Trimming Arborvitae trees posted by Peter DiGregorio on March 03, 2003 at 15:57:11:
: I have several Arborvitae trees located around my property that provide excellent privacy. The trees are about 17 years old and have reached a height of approximately 18 feet. Thus far the weight of the snow this winter has damaged many of the trees. The trees have grown too tall. I would like to trim about three feet off the top of each tree in the spring. However, I don�t know if it will damage them?
So sorry to hear about your arborvitaes. You might want to ask these folks.
