Doing more good with your saw and pruners

Now is a great time to cut down vines that are growing on trees. Even decorative vines can grow too large for the good of a tree or too heavy for a trellis to support. And if you have any invasives such as oriental bittersweet, Japanese honeysuckle or mile-a-minute vine near you, cut them down and bag them for the trash; never compost these major horticultural felons. For more information, Google ‘MA Invasive Plant list’ which includes common and scientific names. Click on the plant name to see a photo of the felon.
