Creating an elevated tree canopy simply means trimming the lower portions away so the upper portions of the trees form a canopy overhead. Of course, the tree benefits from pruning, but the yard, surroundings and homeowner receive some benefits too.
Why Thin Tree Tops for Form Canopies
There are a number of reasons property owners might want the tops of trees thinned out. Sometimes, having too many branches too high up can be detrimental for the tree or plants close to it. One of the benefits to elevating tree canopies is keeping the plants underneath it healthier by not blocking the air and light filtered through. Grass can grow freely since it gets more sunlight and doesn’t thin or die out.
Safer to Walk Around
When trees are thinned out to form a canopy, they create a safe environment conducive to walking. Without the undergrowth, people are more likely to choose to walk through the area, rather than avoid it. It’s also easier for the area to be walked and serviced without hitting your head on low-lying limbs or branches.
Provides for a Neat Appearance
Low-hanging branches often block the view of the property and make it seem smaller. By thinning out the lower tree branches, it opens up the area and makes it feel larger. This can also give it a much neater appearance. Lower branches create an unkempt look. The leaves of thinned-out trees offer the yard a nurtured, clean-cut look and the leaves of the trees appear lacy and elegant. This contributes to a nicely manicured, aesthetically appealing landscape.
