Fiskars Telescoping Tree Pruner

It is safety hazard if branches grows too close to the power line in your garden. You don’t want any branches touch the wires hanging between the pole and your house or it may catch a fire. You have to trim the branches using tree pruner every summer.

I like this new telescoping tree pruner from Fiskars. It is much better than old tree pruner I used to have. The old one was just a long wood stick with a pulling string attached to the blade. It is heavy and the string tends to tangle a lot. The new one from Fiskars is made with Aluminum and it is much light. The best feature is the pulling mechanism is build into the handle. It is very convenient and easy to use. No more tangling strings.

It come with an attachable saw for branches that is too thick for the pruner. I haven’t tried the saw, but I think it double as a self defense weapon in case zombie attacks.

  • I looked at some tree pruner last time I went to home depot. I found this review, does this person have a point?

    “Fiskars Telescoping Tree Pruner would be more effective if the cutting blade operated from top to bottom (rather than bottom up), and also if it had an attached curved hand saw on top. It is near impossible to get a clean cut with the current pulley design, and the target branch does not drop down when cut from bottom up.”

    • That guy is dumb. He is not suppose to have the saw attached all the time. Actually I find the bottom up design is more efficient, I don’t have to “hook” the pruner on the branch. I can just point an cut. The branch will drop down if there is nothing underneath, otherwise just poke it a few times and gravity will do its magic.
