Hey Guys! New here wanted to ask a question and hopefully contribute a bit to the database. I have 4 large green giants outside the house, we are wondering how we can trim them down. They are above 18' tall now. When we got them they were 4'. What's the best way to trim them down to 10' or so. Can't possibly cut them straight up, I figured there's a method to it. Please help!

This article may give you some info:

It talks about no more than 20% so approx 42 inches max.

Are you asking about the Arborvitae Thuja 'Green Giant'?

Yup the green giant. It's quite a big tree. Not sure how to get it trimmed down. Especially height.
