Power Tree Trimming Tools
Having the right tools can make your job so much easier and safer for you. From pole tree pruners to wood – chippers, here is a list of some of the best power tools you can get for making your trees and garden beautiful.
REMINGTON ELECTRIC CHAINSAWS
The Remington – RM1025P two – in one electric chainsaw pole saw combo is one of the best when you need equipment for tree trimming. A gas-powered saw is good but then you have to always remember the correct ratio of oil/gas mixture needed for it not to mention that start-up is exhausting, the many times you have to pull on the starter rope. An electric chainsaw is so much easier. Plug it in and it’s ready to go. This chainsaw weighs only five pounds so it’s easy to handle and won’t tire you out.

POLE TREE PRUNERS
Corona TP 6870 Dual Compound Action Tree Pruner is one of the best. These pruners will trim small – medium-sized trees. Help to keep the shape of your tree, cut back overgrowth, or any limbs hanging over your house or over the road. Tree trimmers make trimming your trees so much safer than climbing up a ladder to get it done. These give you enough reach due to the telescoping pole. With this tree trimmer, the telescoping is controlled simply by a nut. If you loosen the nut you can extend the pole to twelve feet. Remember to tighten the nut back up once you have it extended to the length you need.
It has two options for trimming. Either use the pruning component or you can use the sawing component. The twelve-inch saw can remove entire limbs up to two inches thick. The pruning component is more for trimming limbs.
