Dwarfed by the massive pine, the Pres wasted no time in tackling the task at hand...removing the lower dead branches from the 100' White Pines behind our house.
Chain saws and ladders don't mix so the pole saw was the tool for the job, according to the Pres.
We had severed the Oriental Bittersweet at ground level back in 2015 after I learned how the invasive vine strangles trees. Actually we walked our entire property looking for it. It was a "search and destroy" mission...LOL...and each vine we spotted choking a tree was cut and sprayed!
Now it was time to get rid of the unsightly, already dead Oriental Bittersweet vines. They would simply be placed on one of the brush piles where all the critters hang out. As for the branches of White pine, they will be transported to our wood carving friend...:)
just seeing, saying and sharing...
