Q.Radical cutting of climbing rose tree

Zone San Diego (CA) - 92102 | hejourdain added on August 13, 2016 | Answered

I have in my garden a very well established (probably 30 years old) climbing rose tree, which branches I need to cut radically, as they are covering the most precious sunlight I will use to have a vegetable garden. I do not have the heart to cut this rose tree; however, I want to redirect its growth. Some branches have a 1 1/2 inch section.
