In the northwest people that pick greenery for florists are known as brush pickers. I need branches, not greenery. The easiest place for me to mine is my back yard. The new piece in progress is called Black Bird / White Bird and it has a lot of branches. The best branches have 3 trunk intersections and are hard to spot. I got most of what I need this weekend off my orchard ladder with just a straggler or two to fill in.
