I'd say cut it down.

Trees and shrubs are like children, you can fight all you want to try and shape them into what you want them to be, but in the end you just need to let them grow and become what they really want to be.

Not a problem...

It reminds me of when I first got going in the business, I had this weekly garden job... it was neatly tucked in the edge of a mostly pine forest... to one side of the garden we had this plain ol' native Maple Tree that was just getting started in life and the owner decided he would like that tree to compliment the garden, rather than just another tree in the woods...

So he had me prune it to the picture book[/b] look of the perfect canopy at the perfect height(about 12') and that became part of the annual ritual of putting the garden to bed for the winter... we must have done that for 15 yrs.

It wasn't a fight,,, it was just pruning....
