Cutting silver birch

United Kingdom

Hello. Silver birch in our small garden is blocking out the light. Is it safe to reduce the crown?



Yes cut it back , but I should wait tilll all leaves have fallen and spread Vaseline over the cut ends of the branches, this will reduce chance of disease spores entering wood.
