Use and Care: Positioning Yourself Correctly

Pruning is hard work, so take a comfortable stance with your feet apart. Don't work directly overhead—that way a cut branch can't fall on you. Keep your wrists straight (if you wear a brace for sports, you should also wear it for pruning), and don gloves to protect your hands from blisters and thorns.
