Re: Busy weekend/pruning


Yep- I'm with Kitty- the light weight of an electric wins hands down, especially when using something that you could cut your arm of with if you lost control of the tool.

Why electric? I've had two gasoline chain saws, and I finally decided I wanted to be a gardener, not a partially deaf mechanic. And, yeah, I think the idea of a cord is likely more daunting than the fact of it--especially if it's 150 feet long. Not many places here one couldn't reach with that.

great.
I think I went with electric because it's smaller, lighter, and possibly
less expensive. I knew it would be something I wouldn't use a lot, but it's
a lifesaver when I do need it.

why electric? How are you going to climb a tree with a
cord in the way?

Donna, I love to prune!   I think you should leave
those lower limbs on.

The closer   foliage is to the roots the faster you
have   energy exchange.

Better to not prune newer trees until they get
established.
