I have an ornamental xmas tree which is getting too big.What would happen if I cut a foot off the top?



It would be a foot shorter!
But to be serious, what you are doing is removing the main leader. The tree would recover by forming a new one and continuing to grow. You It's like Canute trying to stop the tide - the tree will carry on growing taller
