Being in a forest with tall trees that provide you with shade and fresh air can be a magical experience. It is easy to walk around under these trees with their canopies all healthy and allowing enough sunlight to enter and prevent grass from growing around the base of the tree.
This is the same case in your yard, only on a much smaller scale. If you let your trees grow without proper maintenance, their branches can overgrow, and leaves can begin to crowd the top of the tree which can be unhealthy for the trees and your entire lawn. Lawn grasses need to be exposed to sunlight four to six hours every day to survive. Some species of grass including Bermuda grass and zoysia need even more sunlight and may not survive with the lack of it. Trimming the upper branches is vital to prevent the top of the tree from overcrowding that can result in different health issues not just for the tree, but also other plants in your yard. You may notice grass and landscaped plants begin to decline in their health or eventually die if the issue of overcrowding of leaves and branches is not addressed. Having unhealthy grass and trees in your yard can instantly make it look unsightly.
To have a healthy lawn, you have to make sure your trees are not casting too much shade on them or blocking the right amount of sunlight they need to thrive.
