I leave in Greece, and I have these large Pine Trees of Mediterranean type, which have grown pretty good. They were planted by my father from seeds 40 years ago, now I have a little baby girl, I am very worried about these trees, as the only entrance for my family is below these pine trees.
I don't know if my best option is to cut them down totally or I could save them by pruning on top of them and making their branches bit smaller.
Off course I am very anxious of them as they are that large. Here are a few pictures of those from side and below:
