Eastern Red Cedar:What would you do?
This was a seedling on our property when we moved here about 7 years ago. I dug it and planted it by a path, giving it, I thought, plenty of room. It's a lovely shrub, naturally pyramidal in form, and I have never done one thing to it. But it is encroaching on the pathway beside it and is covering the dwarf shrubs I planted at its feet. So, what would you do?
Shear it into a smaller pyramid? (It's really tall and I don't look forward to working from a pretty big ladder.)
Limb it up into a trunked tree?
Move the path and shrubs? (Possible, but there is a limit to how far it can move.)
Any other ideas?
