Weeping trees dragging on the ground

Many thanks, I'll do that. I'm fed up with having bark all over the lawn and a bare patch of weed suppressant under the trees!

I have two weeping trees as above which are constantly 'sweeping' the bark mulch around and under them on to the lawn. Will I cause problems for the trees if I cut the ends of the stems off?

 If it should be OK, when is the best time to do it please?

I have a magnificent dracaena which has one stem with the leaves touching the ceiling. I am reluctant to cut down the whole plant. If I cut the tallest part off, will the rest of the plant be affected? When is the best time of year to do this?

I have read various articles about taking cuttings, but they normally refer to a plant that has become bare lower down and is past its best, and therefore the talk is of dumping the tree and making a new one. I don't want to do that as mine is still looking good - just outgrowing its space.

Can I prune it and still keep the original?
