What if the neighbors are balling harder then you?! Then honey you “borrow” their view! It is no accident the lower branch of the tree has been removed. You want to know why? Because from this owners backyard they now get a glimpse of the golf course annnnd the lake! If the branch were still on the tree all they’d be looking at right now is…well…leaves. (For the record the cut made to the trunk of this tree is trash but we’ll talk about that another time.)
Now you know we’re classy over here on this page. So don’t go around cutting big ol’ obvious holes to do this. You are essentially ‘framing’ your “borrowed view” (that’s the discreet way.) A few cuts here and there to create an opening will do just fine. Look around and see if there are any views (architectural or natural) you can “borrow” or any “struggle” you should screen.
