With proper care, apple trees will provide a wonderful harvest year after year. Using the proper tools is important, so be sure to have these on hand:

-A pole pruner with a removable curved-blade pruning saw and a compound-action pruner (also known as a pruner head) to cut the higher, thicker branches.

-A razor-tooth pruning saw (also known as a folding saw) which is for small branches less than 2 inches thick.

-A bypass pruner for the smallest branches that are less than 1/2 inch thick.


For more information about pruning, check out the October issue of Martha Stewart Living. Special thanks to Corona Clipper for giving a razor-tooth saw and bypass pruner to our viewer mail participant.

My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!
