this was supposed to be my birthday present to me. Sadly my favorite hardware store was out of them. Well, I’ll find one sometime this weekend. And DH is not to use this ( I’m afraid he’ll take everything down to the ground)

    We went looking for one today. We ended up getting an electric chain saw on an extention pole, so DF can stand on solid ground. Do you think we’re inrupting our caron footprint using these tools. Good old fashion muscle power would mostly be better, but old muscles give old folks sleepless night.

    I thought about th carbon footprint , a little. and Everyone knows that I don’t love power tools in the garden. However , The apricot tree has been dead since we moved in. It would have taken me much longer than 5 minutes to take it down with my bow saw. I have a tree to remove up front and some bushes to bring down to human size. I tried to do them last summer, but I could never quite get far enough ahead. Plus it also means I won’t be hiring a tree guy to do the smaller jobs. So that should save some carbon , as well as dollars
