Major Tree "Trimming" cherry blossoms

I have these 2 cherry blossom type trees in the front garden, a little too large now. Round the corner from us someone had similar trees chopped back to next to nothing, just the trunk and a few larger branches left but it came back fine over summer. I'm wondering if I can do the same to mine at the end winter but I don't want to kill them off.

Don't prune at the end of winter. All cherry varieties are prone to silverleaf disease which can attack if they're pruned at the wrong time of year. Mid-summer is the safest time. Your trees don't look in need of radical treatment which might spoil the shape if you don't know what you're doing.
