When you have a branch that needs to come down but is just out of reach, you can call a tree service, borrow a tool from your neighbor, or get your own tree pruner. This invaluable piece of equipment will save you money, make your home safer, and make your trees healthier. You need a durable, lightweight model with an extended reach that is balanced and has safety features so you don't cut anything but the tree. A cut and hold option helps keep the snipped branches from dropping on your head. If you're brawny, you can get a manual tree pruner, but if you want to get the job done with less elbow grease, consider purchasing an electric pole saw.
