absolutely agree, chop right down, I would never have bought them in the first place, you are far better buying 3ft plants, cutting back by half on planting. If they have been grown in pots, tbere is your answer...these grow so quickly for that size tree they should have been in 2Ft pots, the root system has been starved.
they will pick up on cutting down you cant kill them. being so leggy has made them weak and vunerable to pests and leaf drop.
