Tree pruning/cutting

I would really appreciate some advice with this one. I have 2 jobs booked in next week, which are very similar. Both customers have trees which have thin branches growing upwards that they would like cut back in rder to keep the trees small and in shape. I can see where the previous pruning has taken place. A couple of question:1. Do I cut back just below the previous pruning cut? This would save a considerable amount of work, as branches have grown out from the previous cut. Or, do I cut back…

budget scarifier

We are looking to buy a scarifier for occasional use, wondered if any one has recommendations? Tool Station have an Einhell GC-SC 2240P on offer at £250 inc VAT, has anyone any experience of these ? The amount we have to do does not justify a professional grade machine, we want the convenience of owning rather than hiring, also seen a Feider FST 212 anyone used these? Any suggestions for a reliable budget machine gratefully received.

"An open association like LJN is just a remarkable place. What you pay per year for what you get out of it is astonishing, and speaking personally, LJN has helped guide me from a new start up business into 5 years of profitable trading and I don't think I could have done that without access to the forum and the great contributors to it."
