    Sometimes the joy of cutting down the whole blasted pyracantha can almost make up for the pain.:D

    well, a friend of mine was doing just that, cutting one down when he stepped on a branch & it stabbed him in the ankle. a few hours later he thought he was gonna lose a foot!!:cry:

    I took a stab in the hand and ended up with an infection that lasted for months. They thought they would have to operate...I hate pyracanthas.

    If you have B positive blood, there is a 99% guarantee of pussy festering boils that drip festunes of black infectious material.


    What I really wanted to say - when pruning Pyracantha, or Hawthorn, it is not only wise at times to wear eye protection, but also foam ear plugs.

    One time, while moving my head sideways, one of the long thorns started to go in my ear, but I stopped in time.

    So on those 2, I bid higher, move slower, and if the bush is large enough, I wear hearing protection.

    Yeah, my knuckles have been sore for a while before.
