This tree was one of a few left on the lot after our house build. The tree is probably 15 years old or so. Can you tell me what species and how adaptable is to to pruning? I know practically nothing about conifers. Thank you.
Although naturalistic in association with the rocks the tree is just too close to the house, has been deformed by pruning as a result - more pruning will only make things worse. I would take it out and plant dwarf conifers and other dwarf plants among the rocks, turn this area thereby into an interesting feature (rock garden).
