Garden Tools: Pruning Saws

Updated: Dec 8, 2021

A pruning saw is a tool with the same sharp teeth as saws used for cutting lumber. But pruning saws are intended for trimming live shrubs and trees.

-Pruning Limb Saw For branches that are too thick for hand pruners. If the branch to be pruned is in a tight area, use a pruning limb saw with a shorter blade. Select a finely-toothed, curved pruning saw for branches up to 2 ½ inches (6.35 cm.) in diameter. Try using a pruning saw with coarse teeth for heavier branches

-High branches require a special type of tool called a tree pruning pole saw. These tools usually have a pole as tall as the gardener using it. Expect a saw blade on one side and a curved blade on the other. The curved blade gets hooked over the branch to be trimmed.
