Keep Understory Plants

Understory plants include saplings and shrubs which grow well in low light conditions beneath larger trees. Understory plants are as significant as larger specimens. They are essential for a natural-looking wooded habitat. They also enhance privacy because they are at the right height to block views into the property from the road.

Wooded areas can be reshaped by selectively adding and removing understory plants. The understory can be enhanced with evergreens.
