Place trees for impact. Looking across the main pond, one can't help but notice a graceful weeping willow tree, its branches glowing with new spring foliage, almost touching the water's surface. To me, the lesson here is all about placement — when a tree is sited in the right spot, it looks natural, as if it has always been there. The other lesson is to admire a tree for its inherent structure and form. Nothing looks more unnatural than an overpruned tree whose owners are trying to tame it into submission.
