This time last year we trimmed some old and low-hanging branches, and we did it again recently to improve light in to the garden and even get us a little peek a boo mountain view! We had to fully extend the ladder then have me climb up a little higher to reach the branches we wanted to trim, but it was worth it for the tiny window to the mountains.
In total we cut back about 10 branches and this is our new view. We nearly cut the two above down as well but it’s pretty freaky being up that high without any real skill or experience in tree trimming haha. In the end we might thin out these trees and take down the one we removed the branches from to the yard will get more light. It looks pretty great now too though! It really opened up a lot of the side yard and changed the whole feel of the side of the property.
