[NAFEX] Apple Pruning

Hello All,

Never realized the amount of work in pruning a standard
sized apple.  Spent most of the day dancing around a Mac
with hand pruners, loppers, and one of those pruning poles.

The pruning pole is extendable and has a saw blade on one
side and loppers on the other.  I never would have believed
how one of those pruning poles can sap your arms of

I used the pole for a while and went back to the ladder.
Although the ladder is more dangerous, you get a lot more
done, with less effort.

I tip my hat to all of you who prune standard sized trees on
a regular basis.
