Amidst the forest's my abode
Not far from the branch where once I was born
Where charming beauty I've bestowed
On natural scenes I'm known to adorn

To earth six roots branch from my greaves
Encased in their bark to shield from bruise
Ascending toward my countless leaves
Perchance they unfurl a palate of hues

Alas these roots I've come to scorn
I know that without their aid I'll not stand
From Mother Earth I still have torn
Them up to forsake these ties to my land

Spoiler for maybe

You're clearly thinking along the right lines in arriving at that answer. I would accept the chandelier as an offspring of the torch or candelabra to satisfy the first stanza. But for the second, having six roots with countless leaves gets problematic. I can imagine a chandelier with six main arms and numerous smaller candle holders or lights from each of them, but even with a google image search I'm having trouble finding an example of such a construction -- if it is done, then it seems to be so uncommon that I wouldn't want to use it in a riddle.

That was a nice poem you wrote. I had to think about it deeply before I understood it.

Figures; once I finally get some time to write a riddle again, I end up without internet access for a week.

Spoiler for guess

shakingdavid takes this one with the little six-toed, nearly wooden-leged, "leafy" critter who would be suicidal to *not* eventually unroot itself.
