Red tips.

We've had these Red Tips in my entryway for 25 years and have never been pruned. They were at least 12 feet high. My wife hired this guy to prune them and I cannot believe what he did!!!!! He cut them back to about 3 feet and they are just ugly. Not to mention there goes my privacy. Will they ever be pretty again?

You will notice that when it recovers it will look better than it ever has.
