Dormant Pruning – March 6

Now is the time to do some pruning before the trees, shrubs & brushes start budding. Ella Maxwell from Hoerr Nursery shows Garry Moore the different cut tools – loppers (which can cut limbs up to an inch in size); hand pruners, like a pair of scissors (for smaller limbs), make sure you trim close to the trunk; and for the really big jobs (outside of using a chain saw), there is a hand saw. When using a hand saw, utilize a three-cut method.
