    Cypress shouldnt be less than 15ft tall. Is pruning it by myself with a use of a ladder doable?? Very risky, fragile wood? Anyone here got the experience? Please let me know

    Height not more than 25 feet can be done even when not a professional. And yes, a ladder is going to be very useful! What to be careful with: avoid cutting back cypress more than 1/3 of its growth as well as avoid flattening the top. Both can be fatal to the tree. And sterilize tools before starting!
