I am buildings and grounds chair at church....andw e have 6 trees planted near the street and 2 more flanking a big window.....all are over grown...the ones near the street are impinging on the power lines and the 2 flanking the windows are beginning to touch the walls of the church.
I find in the files a landscape plan calling for crimson sentinal maples.....well they are not that!!
They are deciduous, have a fairly small leaf similar to an elm, don't turn color in the fall...are shaped like a linden.
I want to have them trimmed...from what I can see, to keep the look they would have to be trimmed with a hedge trimmer....and I am wondering what that would do to them.
any suggestions as to what they could be?
