Getting Rid of Tree Saplings

After a soaking rain is a good time to rid the garden of maple saplings. A pair of pliers might help to get a better grip. Grab the sapling close to the base and pull straight up and the roots come with the plant unless the sapling has grown too tall. In that case, snip them off at the base. (05/12/2010)
