how to tidy up this 'tree'?

Posted: 15/10/2013 at 20:05

thank you for all kind and useful information. yes i have started to cut some sml branches down will do more in the weekend with a proper saw. The mess is much terrible as i thought when the outer layer is gone, the lower branch is almost being 'gravity' and grow towards the field which putting lots of weight on the stone barrier. so need it down asap too.

Just one more thing to ask for suggestion-- is there a quick way to stay privacy screen out from main road's street light /public view but still get some  sunshine at day time to my flower plot? --as you can see from the pic below jz in front of the tree, also there are 2 big nice tree nx door blocked the sunshine for half of the day at this time of the year

not sure what's the name of the green tree but i'm sure experiance gardeners here could jz tell by a glance.

It's going quite wild now as we dont know how to trim it or cut it down to properly shape it so it actually destroying our neighbour's fence.

Please help and give us some suggestion or advise. thank you


p/s:I wont wanna cut  it too much as i know it has been housing some birds deep in the center.

 (only able to upload this photo despite an hour trying. will try again tomorow if needed thank you)
