I was bemoaning how sore my arm was the other day after pruning branches from the silver maple tree in our side yard. Some of them were as big around as my thigh. There's something about hand sawing that takes it out of a guy.
And then I ran across these photos a friend sent a while back. Think of the sore arms and backs and everything else that resulted from "pruning" these babies. My arm doesn't feel so sore now.
