Conifers too large

Julie Meneses asked 12 years ago
We have three conifers that need to be removed from our tiny garden. I believe that whoever planted them thought that they were minatures ! Can they be sold ? Is there a demand for mature trees, approx 12 – 14 ft ? They are starting to split. Seems a shame to destroy them but they have to go as we have no light in our house and they are planted very near.

The word ‘miniature’ when applied to conifers is relative and most miniatures will eventually make sizeable trees, too big for small gardens.

They are difficult to lift and move successfully at that size, unless nursery grown, so you will have to cut them down.
