This thankfulness tree was created by arranging thin branches in a vase and cutting leaves from colorful construction paper - either use a stencil or trace actual leaves. Upon arrival for Thanksgiving dinner, invite guests to jot down what they're thankful for and hang on the tree.
A unique chandelier steals the show in this transitional dining room, evoking thoughts of a tree with its many branches. Naturally, the designers complemented the earthy look with vases full of flowers, a wood dining table and a mural of a cherry tree in bloom.
Poorly pruned trees don’t bounce back easily from their ugly duckling state. The redbud tree in the foreground is poorly pruned; the one to the left (background) shows an unpruned redbud tree with its natural multi-branched trunk and vase shape. It’s always best to hire a certified arborist to tackle tree pruning if your goal is to shape a tree.
