    Never seen one pruned up like that before! Makes it look odd.

    Picea glauca 'Conica' for the scientific name.

    Should I correct the names on my pics.
    I have labelled them Picea glauca 'Albertiana Conica'

    One near here pruned recently..so ugly....see before and after.

    Cleaned the tree up a bit since there were lots of dead twigs within

    I hate to say it but a tree like that should be put out of its misery. I can't think of anything that would mitigate the insensitive 'pruning'. Such a shame!
