Hi, what brand or weight of pole cutter and pole clippers do you recommend for home use? Several people will use the tools from retirees in their 70's to men in their 40's. We are a townhouse association with understory trees which we want to prune ourselves. I had a class in use pole tools, but need tips on better tools, so we don't waste our money. Thanks, Sally, Chicago, IL

Hi Sally:

Take a look at the Fiskars line of pruning saws, loppers, and pole pruners -- they're reliable and affordable:

Fiskars, Silky, Corona, Felco, etc. all make quality pruning tools.
