(See pic)

They went backed up for the most part but the one by the driveway is getting in the way and I started trimming it today.
I am using a sawsall on it just to get to a starting point.
The sparrows are PO at me, they like that one.

This is what happens when you do not get snow for years and then get a heavy snow storm.



I need a on that thing.

Yeah you do... And being a landscaper you reminded me of a time my brother and I went into a neighborhood that we were working in and watched a guy cut a tree down with a sawsall...

:lolup:

Hey, I guess whatever works to get the job done right... huh?


I would help you out if I am ever in the neighbor hood... May need to demo those things and start over...

The sawsall works well with a long blade on it.
As far as cutting them down, well I am just about to do it to the one by the driveway. I will probably try to trim the other one down somewhat so the birds still have a place to go.

Its hard to tell what those are and based on your Plant Zone which I believe is like 6 are those Junipers? I guess I would need a closeup to make an educated guess...

Good eye, they are Junipers and so you know I did not plant them the builder did.
They are at least 14' high, I guess I should have wacked them a long time ago and would have but all the song birds like them, so I just let them go.

PS
I hate yard work.

Yeah I have never been a Juniper fan but they are affordable plants to give you greenery in front of your house.
