***HELP - Need Evergreen Advice***

Roofers, without my permission, cut many bottom branches (that were NOT touching the roof) off a very TALL evergreen tree - and now it looks horrible.

I know...old tree, planted too close to house, etc. I did not plant it, but LOVED, LOVED it's look from both outside & inside the house. I am angry & heart broken.

Only options I can think of are: (1) cut it down & plant a new tree or (2) plant tree in front of it, to hide the missing branches.

Any suggestions???

Thank you.
