Couple weeks of rain and relatively warm weather have cleared most of the snow. Now that the trees are dormant, it’s a perfect time to prune untended trees that came with the property.

I have hopes the lone maple “bush” will start looking more like a proper tree after a few years of clearing suckers, sawing off thin trunks and deadwood, and pruning waterspouts and weak branches.
