The most dramatic result was up front. After trimming, the house just pops off the lot! It made me realize that if you're going to put your house on the market, you should seriously consider a tree trim beforehand. On the negative side, there's not as much shade as there was, but there's a lot more growing room (and sun) for the other landscaping plants.
By my eyes, tree trimming is an art. Which branch to take off to make the tree "balance" and look good? These guys did a great job.
Where the stage shall be going...
Cut back from the house.
More sun to the garden!
