The tree in the front of our house had branches that nearly touched the ground, so we decided to trim it up above our head level. The branches were sagging quite a bit, so we were cutting higher on the tree than we expected.
We used a folding saw, a chain saw, and eventually a ladder to limb up this tree. It was nice to get out of the house for a while, and it only took an hour or so.
I trimmed up the trees in the back after cutting the grass. We were considering taking the trees out, but they probably belong to the neighbor.
The limbs on this tree were completely touching the ground. There was another tree growing in between it’s branches that I cut down. I don’t think the neighbor will notice.
