Large pruners and bow saws are the most useful for slide alder and other small annoying trees. There are many large blowdowns on the route that are probably best dealt with using a chain saw. Please sign up below with any tools you can bring along.

  • Hand Pruners (long handle, 2 handed type)

  • Garden Pruners (one handed type) - these should be good for the azalea since you can grab it with one hand and cut with the other.
