If you are impatient for a beautiful path, you have options! One option is to plant fast-growing trees such as birch, poplar, aspen or willow. They do not have as grand of a presence as oaks, walnut or hemlock, but they give the same feel of a towering allée. Make sure to cut off any side branches under 10-12 feet for a high canopy. If you leave all of the branches to grow, the path will seem like a forest as opposed to an allée. Also notice the entrance created by the two sections of fence in the foreground. This entrance area gives the stroller a stopping and starting point similar to the large trees used in the goldenrod field.
