Beware Bending Branch –

Many years held a coniferous branch on hand in a totally surprised time after he had done shattered literally while tests for flexibility. aeons past. When breathing normally again, the branch was still in his hand, and the tree was a couple of feet away, because I had put up. I was in a cup of tea celebrations are events came to my house, disasters are events tea and realized something I’ve never forgotten, however, often forget to convey to students :. Never bend a frozen branch

Now that may seem obvious, but not so obvious perhaps like putting your tongue on a railing frosted like the sun is rising later only hope of rescue before sunset. Some setbacks are not believed brilliantly “what if”, but simply a lack of coordination. I have also taken cleanly from a frozen white pine branch with a deft flick of a hose that would otherwise have bent quite easily safely.

For those of you in the north, where trees might get frozen solid and convincing, make an effort to thaw out before attempting to work on them. Hopefully this post will prevent some of these avoidable accidents. If you’re so clumsy karmically prone as I am, well, maybe we have more interesting stories to share that those who are smart and skilled. Otherwise, there seems to be little advantage.
