Front Tree Makeover


Posted by admin | Posted in Trees | Posted on June 4, 2008

I know it may be hard to appreciate what is going on here with just these cropped photos, but Ryan and I spent a few hours this past Sunday trimming back this enormous shrub in our front yard.

It went from WILD to WOW!  What you see here is only the base of it.  This super-wide evergreen reaches over 7′ high.

Thanks go to my Mom for this clean-up idea.

Yes, I can appreciate the photos and all of your hard work!! I once had a shrub just like that – is it a mugho pine? – and cut it down to the ground because it was overwhelmingly large for too small a space — of course!
The secret is buying yourself a good saw. A curved, folding saw that cuts on both strokes works very well. I asked Andy to cut something for me and he was amazed at how well it worked! The aforementioned shrub only took about 20-30 minutes to hack down. (Having some strong arm muscles helps also!) Aunt Lisa
