1. Let’s cut to the chain Landscape Management Digital Editor Kelly Limpert was in Asheville, N.C., to learn about — and why yes, even test — the newest chainsaws from Husqvarna. Don’t worry, she’ll be sticking to her writing job, with some light sawing as a side hobby.

6. A couple branches from the Bartlett family tree The crew from Bartlett Tree Experts, including Nicole Belhumeur (second from right), corporate recruiter, and Bret MacKay (right), foreman, take a break from giving plant problem diagnosis quizzes to the NCLC students to pose for a photo in front of one of their service trucks.

7. Orange army It was easy to spot the team from LandCare — their bright orange jackets were an even brighter orange than the colors the team from Oklahoma State was sporting. Account managers (L to R) Katie Newbern of Nashville, Tenn., Ryan Burrow of San Diego, Hermelinda Castro of Dallas and Cody Tibbs of Sacramento, Calif.
