Why you need a professional to trim or remove the Leyland Cypress Trees .
If you do it yourself, you will need expensive equipment that you may never use again (long reach power saw, tall extension ladder or bucket lift, professional grade loppers, professional grade hedge trimmers, etc). You need a long reach extension saw to get in close to the trunk to trim the dead branches. You will also need a special ladder to be able to reach the top limbs.

Example of a healthy Leyland Cypress Tree. You can minimize the chances of these trees becoming damaged during the summer if you make sure they are watered during any drought period with at-least 1 inch of water per week. Do not spray the foliage with a sprinkler but instead at the base with a slow running garden hose. Irrigation systems can also be designed to provide the appropriate amount of water.
