I have inherited a multi-stemmed copper beech tree that is about 20 foot from our house. It's currently about 20 foot tall, with the widest stem being about 15cm at it's base. It appears to have been cut back a few times and possibly coppiced once. It's in totally the wrong location with respect to the house and creates a lot of shade so I need to reduce it's height significantly. Would I be better to coppice it, cut it back to a managable height or should I take it out completely and replace it with something more suitable? Opinions gratefully received.
