Trimming Cypress Pines


Question about trimming a row of Cyrpress Pine tress that line my back yard. I am a newbie starting from step one so please bear with me. The top of the trees is about 10 feet (and growing) so I was looking at Sears for a tool that has an extension of some kind. I noticed no tool with extension when looking at trimmers but a few when looking at pole saws.

First question: I am looking for a trimmer correct? I basically am going to be trimming branches so I am guessing a pole saw is not the best option.

Second question: Would it be advisable to trim the tops of trees of that height from below?

Third question: Anyone know of a good trimmer that would work in this case.

Fourth question: Having never trimmed trees (or hedges) before, what is the difficulty level of what I am describing? Would a novice be able to do a decent job.

Thanks.
