Willow Trees

Pruning a 35year old willow tree.

Our willow tree must be about 30/40 ft. high. Blocks out a lot of light for other shrubs and lawn. How can we make it smaller?

If you have proper tree trimming equipment, and prior knowledge of how to do this, then I would say that you could attempt this yourself. However, since it is so large I would not attempt this. Leave trimming large trees to professionals.
