One of the more common uses for the scythe is around trees in an orchard or newly planted woodland. Strimmers are infamous for killing young trees by stripping the bark because you can’t see exactly where the string is.
With a scythe you are much more in control and can place the blade so it will cut neatly around a tree without damaging it or the plastic tree guard.
