Serious Pruning

Yes that is my husband up in that tree.  We have finally decided to tackle the back portion of our yard.  It’s been on the list for a long time.  Since it is so dark back there, we decided to limb up some of the hemlock and fir trees.  It is much brighter now and my compost bins are thankful.

My son and I spend some time raking up all the branches,cones and needles yesterday.  We still have much to do but it is looking much tidier now.  As far as planting, I will stick with native plants such as ferns etc.  It’s a tough area and I don’t have time to pamper.

  1. That really looks dangerous. I don’t think my husband would come back alive. Good luck with the project and glad you won’t have to rake up so much stuff this fall.

  2. I was a nervous wreck watching him. I had 911 on the speed dial!
