Ligustrum trimming in new home

17 years ago

I just moved to the DFW area and the previous owner had about 25-30 large ligustrums that he never touched. They are now about 15-20 feet tall and will be reaching the power lines shortly if they do not get trimmed. The truth is I can't stand them because they block ALL the sun for my gardens and grass and would like to trim them back as far as I can. Since removing 25-30 "trees" is out of the question for now how far can I trim them back. Can I make them shubs again by trimming all but 2 ft?
