On Monday, I bought a powered pole saw, which is just a pole saw with a chainsaw blade on the end. So year, it's a powered pole arm. It worked wonders, hacking away at the neighbor's tree branches which were problematic. (That mulberry tree really needs a proper pruning.) After bringing down a forest worth of branches, I hacked them up, producing quite the pile of debris. By the time that I wore out, I made it through about 3/4 of the branches. (Mitre saws kill branches fast.) There's still more to go, but I'll get there.
And I ache today. Oh, I ache.
