Hi, I have (had) 6 beautiful large redwood trees in my yard.
Last week my neighbor asked if he could have his tree-trimming guy trim a couple of branches off two of them to allow more sunlight into his yard & I agreed.
Instead they sawed 20 good sized branches about 2 feet from the trunks from the backs of each in one area & they look terrible now. The trees are no longer symmetrical & nearly 1/2 of the back of one is just gone.
My neighbor assures me the branches will grow back & fill in again but I'm skeptical.
