Norfolk Island pine tree
I have four 50-foot Norfolk Island pine trees. I live in central FL. Can I cut off about 15 foot of the trees? There are four in a group. I'm afraid of wind damage to my home if they snap off.

There is conflicting information on topping an outdoor Norfolk Island Pine Tree.
You will likely correct the situation for a time, but most times the tree will began to grow new leaders.
In some cases a new leader will not grow and you may be left with a tree with a less then appealing appearance.
