Can anyone advise.

I have 5 very old damson trees which have been allowed to grow to about  25/30 feet tall, they  hang over an upper floor roof terrace and that is how I crop them.   How a should I best reduce their height and spread to preserve them.  they have lots of character.


If they are old trees, they are unlikely to be on a dwarfing rootstock. If you cut them back a lot, they probably wont fruit. I'd leave them alone if you can crop them where they are. Just cut out any damaged or dead wood, about now.
