How to limit height of tree

Asked July 27, 2018, 9:48 AM EDT

Hi there. A volunteer tree is growing in my backyard, under various power lines to my house. Wondering if there's a way I can trim or prune tree so it doesn't grow IAS tall or wide as it might on its own

I think your volunteer tree is a Chinese Elm. You really don't want that tree growing in your yard. It will get tall and wide but it is an invasive, non-native tree that will seed and seed and seed. That is how yours got there.
