The tree is very proportion to the house and that is what I wanted. The thing is, those leggy branches sway and hang low when it rains. It looks pretty bad until it recovers. Thought if I could give it more branches, it wouldn't sag so much? See those Buford holly hedges below it? They are 5 feet tall from the sidewalk in front of it. I cut off 18" a few months ago. They are huuuge. Below the hollys are a row of ruellia. Any more undergrowth below it would have to be of mega proportion. Thanks for your thoughts on this. I just want a fuller look. Maybe a good trim next February, leave it alone, then see what happens after that??
