Every spring we find lots of branches that have accumulated over the winter. It is one of the dirtiest jobs we do. Those pine branches are like whips that whirl around and slap you in the head or up side your face if you are not careful. It is also dusty and having to hold the branches firmly to keep them from slapping you causes muscle spasms in the hand. It's a dirty job but has to be done. Each year there seems to be a little less to do. We use the mulch on the driveway, and other areas that need to be leveled off or are to muddy. Whew! Glad it is finally done.
