Pole saws for tree trimming are an easy and convenient way to reach high branches from the ground without needing to climb the tree and they are simple enough to use for nearly everybody to do on their own. In our business we often use the pole saw for trimming small trees or lower branches on large trees.
We use a Stihl gas powered pole saw with a chainsaw attachment on the end. We also use a manually operated pole saw and pole pruner that can be connected to extension poles to reach as high as needed. I want to describe these tools and what they are best used for.
