Attic insulation

Is their any such thing as too much insulation? We recently purchased a 25 year old town house. I was in the attic and had noticed that there is close to 3 feet of blown in insulation. I needed to pull it off of the soffits and will be placing the styrofoam vent spacers in the roof bays this fall. However I was wondering if it is possible to haver to much insulation.

When insulation is blocking or even reducing air flow, it's too much insulation.

So, after I install the vent panels in between the roof joists, how deep should I keep the insulation in the attic?

As long as the insulation isn't blocking anything, there is no real harm in letting it stay.

Just some fool who wasted money putting it in there before you. Unless you live in the tundra.
