The best way to get the most out of your trees is to take good care of them.
And winter is here; this time of the year is the best time to work on your trees; there aren’t so many leaves, meaning it’s easier to trim off tree branches.
For perfect tree trimming and pruning, you need the right tools. Here are a few tools for a good start.
- Pruning shears
A pair of pruning shears is, without a doubt, one of the essential tools to have. It is versatile; you can use it on both your trees and bushes. Like a pair of scissors, you can make use of this tool to trim off twigs that appear to be at an awkward angle.
Pruning shears also come in different types, shapes, and sizes, so, for ease in trimming, think of the condition of your hands, your grip’s strength, and the variety of trees you’ll be working on when you need to choose a pair of pruning shears.
- For larger branches, we recommend loppers
Loppers are like pruning shears, but with long handles, a sturdier blade, durable finish, and they are a bit heavier, meaning you’ll need a lot of arm strength when using this tool.
So, if you have larger branches, this is the perfect tool.
- For difficult branches, a pole pruner is perfect
If you’ve tried tree trimming before, you understand how difficult some branches can be to trim, mainly if they are in hard-to-reach heights.
The perfect tool for these kinds of branches is a pole pruner. These tools can reach branches that are up to a height of 15 feet in the air. If you plan on buying a pole pruner, we recommend you go for one that has a pruning saw and a bypass blade.
The pruning saw can be helpful when it comes to larger branches, and the bypass blade is designed to trim off thicker tree branches up to 2 inches thick.
Just make sure you’re comfortable using any of these tools; for questions and assistance with these tools, always seek the help of an expert.
