I rather like it as a tree. it's a great colour. But can anyone tell me what it is and how much bigger it will get? It's about 14m high now. Plus is there any way to reduce its size without it looking like one of those horrible decapitated leylandii? Is there also a risk to the house from the roots? The tree is 2 metres from the foundations of our house and we are on clay soil. I fear we may have to remove it altogether.
