    Pruning pines on the circular drive out at the farm. Removing all the low branches that interfered with the vehicles, 15 trailer loads like the one pictured and I'm not finished yet. Gloves a necessity, the dead branches and pine needles are brutal on exposed skin. DSCF0007 (Large).JPG DSCF0002 (Large).JPG DSCF0004 (Large).JPG

    Now more pines at home. Made up a pole saw using steel tubing and a Bahco pruning saw blade. 1 inch tubing with machined aluminum bar stock threaded on one end and epoxied into the other. Works like a charm. The Bahco blade is razor sharp, good thing it comes with a reusable guard. A bit on the fine tooth side it makes it easy to cut with, but maybe a bit slow compared to coarser teeth. The 40 year old pine pictured here is hard as a rock, it took about a minute to cut through the thick branch I am holding here. Similar sized softwood went twice as fast.
