Q.What type of evergreen is in my yard?

Zone 18914 | Anonymous added on May 19, 2020 | Answered

Can you identify from the attached photo what type of evergreen I have and would you recommend removing the lower branches to about 10’ off the deck? They block the peripheral view when exiting a driveway. Your thoughts are appreciated. Thanks.

An expert would want to closely inspect the bark, cones and needles to identify your tree. We suggest you contact your County Extension office for help with this. This may be your local office's website: https://extension.psu.edu/bucks-county.

If you decide to trim the bottom of the tree, it should be done when the tree is not actively growing, in late winter or early spring.
