What kind of tree is this and how to prune it?
We have a giant tree in our backyard that looks like at one point it was topped, and it has spread really wide and bushy and will soon be blocking our view of the bay. We would like to control its height, and thin it out, making it smaller all around.
So first of all - what kind of tree is this, and how/when can we prune it to control its size without hurting the tree or making it look funky?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
