We have some evergreen leylandii trees in the garden, and TBH I want to 1/2 their height to about 12 feet - I have a southern facing garden and at this time of year they block a lot of light frown

From chatting to a couple of the guys doing the work there seems to be two reasons for the big chop.

1: They've suddenly found a lot of trees that are basically dead inside, and it's only the outer growth that's keeping them vertical, good gust of wind and they'll be down.

2. It's the end of the tax year, and if they don't spend it all quickly they'll get less next year.
