We Have 3 Very Large Blue Spruce Trees That Are Empty

Anonymous added on September 14, 2013 | Answered

We have 3 very large spruce trees that are empty of needles inside.   I can actually stand inside the tree (some lower branches have been removed). Just the tips that reach the sun have any needles.  What can I do? Should the bare inside branches be removed?
