1st make sure they're not planted to deeply before wasting time pruning trees that may be headed for the chipper. You should be able to see the root flair. If they look like telephone poles and you can't see the flair they are too deep. Pruning is an art, I suggest you call a local arborist, find one that is willing to work with you consult or teach you how to prune. Good luck.
