Pruning

I have a few very healhy evergreen trees that form a privacy screen between my house and the neighbor's. (I do not know what kind of trees they are, but I could send a picture if told how.) The lower branches have extended over my driveway by about 2 feet.

When and how is the best way to prune these branches and save the trees?

Hi,

Not knowing what type of evergreenit is hard to say how or how much yo can prune and still maintain an attractive plant. If you could send picture to my e-mail address I will determine what type of plant and suggest ways to prune.
