Does one snip these off please , I really dont want to spoil this rose, as it has lovely pink flowers and grows tall , I think it is a rambling rose there are some longer stems on it also with no seed heads on and some really green stems also.

When pruning yes or you could leave well enough alone but dont think it will survive growing amongst that willow or ash lots of competition for its roots.

gardendelights, You could snip them off and leave them somewhere that the birds might find them interesting.
I agree with Greengage on the negative competition.
roses are heavy feeders and like the ground around them to themselves. If you want the rose to grow stronger then something/s will have to be transplanted out of that area or else you will have to lavish it with constant feeding and watering to see much of an improvement.
