Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte Discusses Illuminating the Majestic Tree

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte tree uplightingSpring is closer than you think…only 44 days away! With the arrival of spring comes an explosion of budding trees throughout the Charlotte area. As a universally powerful and majestic symbol, the tree is used to represent so many facets of life, literally and figuratively. In literature trees symbolize a multitude of things ranging from happiness and health to beauty and abundance, while in mythology the “tree of life” represents fertility and immortality. Most importantly, trees are a physical expression of life, growth and vigor reminding us that without trees human life would be unsustainable.

A recent survey conducted by the National Association of Home Buyers (NAHB) shows that outdoor lighting consistently tops the list of most wanted outdoor features. Along with outdoor lighting as a whole, many forms of tree lighting will create depth and texture within your landscape or garden. Professional tree lighting should inspire the onlooker through the effect not the fixture.

Uplighting can create dramatic shadows using the trees’ branches.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte is well versed in this art and we work with the homeowner, to select trees with natural grace with canopies and branching full of character.Trees with too many limbs or limbs that are bushy and close together are not recommended for this application. Up lighting works best to compliment the tree’s height and width, while down lighting or moon lighting plays the light off upper branches to produce a dazzling effect.

During each of our installations, our experienced crews take extra care to not harm the tree in any way, as such damage can pave the way for insects and diseases to move in and cause further damage. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte also makes safety a high priority by making certain all cords and wiring are out of sight, eliminating the dangers involved with loose cords or exposed areas running atop the ground which can become a safety hazard.
