    Hi All, will this conifer eventually regenerate to its former glory? We are not particularly thrilled with the tree surgeon's pruning work! Cheers.

    We had about ten feet taken off the top of several hundred of them a few years back by a man and his tractor. They looked awful after he had finished but they recovered to such an extent that we had to have them cut again last year. They don't look too good at the moment as they have only just started to regrow.

    Some confifers will not shoot from old wood, leylandii for example. Cutting them back wont encourage new growth lower down, however side branches can grow and fill oit.

    Sadly there probably arent many options when cutting back that will look good
