Another victim of overzealous plantings. Inappropriate proportion to the plot size and front yard. The first picture reflects poor planning without prior knowledge on growth maturity. That spruce is already encroaching on the front entrance walkway. Spruces are not good candidates of regular pruning requiring severe removal. That is the situation the homeowner has. Those are not dwarf species of spruce.

If it were me, I wouldn't touch those trees for pruning. I'd tell the homeowner that he should have the tree next to the walkway moved at the very least and his BEST option would be to have it moved to a different part of the yard. One Mature spruce tree in the front yard should be plenty.
