If large, dead branches are choking your trees and shrubs, this is the time to clear them away.
Designed for cutting old, dead wood, Bahco’s Heavy-Duty Anvil Lopper ($89.78 through www.rittenhouse.ca) has a sharp blade that chops limbs up to 1½ inches in diameter.
The 33-inch handles will help you reach deep into the brush, while a leverage-assist feature helps take some of the sweat out of the job.
When the snow melts next spring and little green shoots sprout up in your yard, you’ll be thankful that you put in the effort now.
