85 year old rose "tree"

Hi, I have 2 "old fashion" roses and a rose tree. All are 85 + years old; my Great Grandma planted them. The rose tree base looks almost petrified, but the tree keeps growing like crazy and has hundreds of blooms constantly. The problem is it is only growing thick on one side and thinning on the other. Any suggestions? Thank You

As roses age, they sometimes start to decline. One way to rejuvenate them is to cut them back severely. In the case of a tree rose, you can cut the top "ball" back to within several inches of the trunk to force new growth from near the graft union above the trunk.
