    Hello!!! I am new to this group. I have a huge pencil cactus that has taken over and has grown over my fence and gate. The largest branch has a diameter of 3 to 4 in. I need to cut at least part of it down. How do I do this safely? Can a chainsaw be used? What about the dangerous sap? Any tips would be appreciated.
