When I prune trees or shrubs I place a large tarp under the area where I am
pruning. As I prune the the branches that I cut fall onto the tarp. When I have to move the ladder I drag the tarp and and re-position it under the ladder. If trimming a ground height shrub I lay the trap around the shrub and move it if needed. When the tarp is becoming too full with branches I fold it up and use it to carry, or if too heavy, drag the branches to my compost pile.
