    to cut blind material. We got a pretty good freeze last night, about 28 degrees. Will the leaves stay on long after we cut it?

    It depends on what materials you are talking about. If its willows, I think one of the main factors is, did it frost. If not you should be ok. If it frosted, you may be in trouble. I wouldn't waste any time on yellowed willows. Just my experience. If it's oak or vegetation you'll be fine all season.

    Try using cedar limbs. They work like a charm and keep pretty good color throughout the season. My buddies and I have been using it for many years with excellent results. I am not sure if they are abundant/available in your area. But, we have millions of them around here and most land owners will let you cut all you want.

    Diddo on the cedar. We also use cain. It takes alot to cover anything, but if you find it bushy enough in then it will hold it's leave and color for most of the season.
