Clear weed branch below wire fence

I'm looking for a good way to clear them. Weed branch is harder to clear than weed grass. And there's a driveway on the other side of the fence too.

Use any sharp tool you have handy. Pruners and saws work well with woody material. If you don't want it to come back, treat it with Round up on the ground and/or stumps left behind.

The problem with a situation like that, as you probably know, is that the roots, leaves and other dead or dying foliage accumulates , effectively raising the soil enough that it's hard to get under the wire. So you will probably want to do a little digging or scraping first. After that, as mentioned, pruners or saws work. And actually, going the pruner route, followed by Roundup, you can probably nip enough to avoid tampering with the soil. If you want to go the saw approach, a pruning saw is best suited because of it's more aggressive teeth and more set in the teeth, which provides a wider kerf, meaning less drag, particular in something that is still growing. You can buy pruning saw blades for a reciprocating saw if you happen to have one, or, if you think that you might have further use for it you can buy a pruning saw with a simple handle on it a your local hardware, garden supply, or big box.
