We just purchase a home where there is a Crepe Myrtle that is about 30' high and hanging over the house. I really want it off the house but don't want to kill it. Bottom line is I would like to have it more manageable. Thank You for any suggestions Mark Klosek

Crape Myrtles benefit from very hard pruning every year, or every few years. You can cut back to any height that you choose, either after the flowers drop or during dormancy.
