Thank you , the majority seem to be coming down on the side if leaving it at present . It is healthy but getting larger by the year ! R

Thank you both for your helpful suggestions. I am reluctant to spoil the tree. I am aware that the tree will put on extra growth to compensate,and this is why I asked for advice as I am in such a quandrary !Perhaps I'll leave it in the pending file in the garden ! R

I am a regular Gardeners World Subscriber and have been for many years. At the front of my cottage there is a lovely copper beech tree after which the cottage is named. It is getting very large and shading my neighbour [they don't mind] but I feel it is getting too big. I would appreciate some advice  as to whether I should get it lowered or whether it should not be touched. The trunk is about 1 foot but I don't know when it was planted as I only bought the cottage 2 years ago. It does not have a TPI.Please can someone who has a real knowledge and love of trees give me some advice ?Many thanks. R.

I would appreciate some advice before I call in the Tree Surgeon...I have a very lovely copper beech in front of my cottage and it is getting very large and shading the house next door. They don't mind, but it seems to be getting larger and flourishing there ! Can anyone advise me as to whether it should be pruned or not  as I don't want it to get out of hand. At present the trunk girth is about 1 foot, but I don't know how old it is as I only bought the house 2 years ago. I am a regular subsciber to Gardeners World and this is the first question I have asked. It doesn't have a TPI . Thanks for your help. Rowan.
