Weed Whip

The weed whip, or as some plainly call it, a weed whacker, is a double edged blade attached to a long handle. As with other tools we use on the trail, this is yet another alternative to a powered tool. We do use powered weed-whackers when there are large areas to cover, but this handy tool is so much lighter, and requires no fuel or repair. Older children can responsibily use this tool when along for trail clearing trips. This tool isn't intended for heavily wooded

areas of the trail, but rather you're more open areas where vines and large weeds tend to swiftly encroach on the trail throughout the spring and summer months. This tool comes in a few different shapes, this one here held by two brackets, another held by just one in a curved shape. Some have blades that are curved inwards.
