I have some serious pruning to do on one older one and another that is only two years old, and is a Hicksii.

You can easily reduce their size by one-half to three-quarters.
Such severe pruning is best done in early spring so they have spring and summer to recover. They will respond by throwing up a lot of new treeclear.barted Reading Time: 3 mins.
