We had a bay leaf tree planted in our garden moved from another garden. For the first couple of years it was fine. Then all the leaves fell off. But the shoots started growing from the bottom of the trunk. It is now a tall shrub with the original trunk. How do I shape it back into a ball shape tree?

This can be difficult to do without knowing proper pruning techniques, as sometimes improper pruning will further hurt the shape. I would recommend finding someone with extensive pruning knowledge to help you shape it back up to how you want it.
