“Being a Citizen Pruner and using my fabulous new pole saw allows me to be an  awesome urban warrior and fight for our trees. I love having this sweet tool to get the job done.  You also get serious respect and lots of curious gazes walking down the sidewalk with it in hand. ”  Lynn Tondrick, Citizen Pruner Challenge winner.
