RE: Busy weekend

Here, DH has discovered that if I trim the lower limbs so I don't hit MY
head on them, he can ride the mower and not hit his head.  Of course when
he's out walking our dog pack, he still has to watch his head! LOL!!!  

While I like to keep some of the trees limbed up, it is really difficult to
get up that high, even with my pole pruners.  The yard is uneven enough that
ladders are a little dangerous, so I've gotten used to many of the trees
being low to the ground, like me!

The short joke here is I trim trees so I can walk under them.   That of 
course comes from my husband.
     If the trees are big enough you would hit your head then they are
than I guessed when you said the 2nd season.   Instruction ISU gives is you 
should not trim the 1st year unless you have damaged or rubbing limbs.
     I wish I were close enough to stop by and help.   Wouldn't we have a 
great time!   I have great pruning tools & a BIG ladder.
