A snag is nothing more than a dead tree. And as long as it doesn't pose a threat to people or nearby structures, it's good to let it be. Snags can provide a lot of great benefits to all sorts of wildlife.


Both raspberries and blackberries are bramble fruit that could find a place by a back fence (where they won't snag unsuspecting passersby).

Hiring a group of people with the tools to snag fruit from high or even low areas can be an expensive proposition, especially if you only have a few trees or plants to pick from.

Fold back 3 to 4 inches of wire at each end of the cut piece to provide a strong, clean edge that will not poke or snag and that will be easy to latch.
Stand the wire in a circle and set it in place for the compost pile.

At home, I snag a peach from a Long Island roadside stand. I sit down at my desk and look at it. It is merely a peach -- what my mom calls a healthy dessert.

This tool enables you to dig down deep and snag the dandelion by the root, removing root, plant and all.Another option is to deny the dandelions light by using landscape fabric around ornamental shrubs and flowers.

Despite its ferny appearance, this slow-growing palm has tough fronds with spine-tipped leaves and is best placed where you will not accidentally snag your clothes as you brush past.

Therefore, you may want to use an old woolen blanket to drag over the area first, which should snag most of these burrs. Then the area can be treated with a pre-emergent, such as corn gluten meal, to prevent germination of any seeds left behind.

A companion planting example: Borage is a lovely herb with the most gorgeous edible blue flowers, but if you plant it near your squash plants, it may snag the squash vine borer and turn to a sticky black mess overnight.
