How to trim trees in the garden? What tool to choose?
If the main tools in the garden are a shovel and a hoe, these are garden shrub trimmers, push-button trimmers and high-rise trimmers. Modern models from Gardena are so convenient that they allow you to turn a tedious and tedious work into a pleasant activity.
For quality pruning, it is important not to save on the tool. Meanwhile, many gardeners still have only one simple pruning shear in their arsenal – for all occasions. And a lot of problems are associated with this: it cuts thin branches, does not cut the density, and if you need to cut the crown at the top of the tree, you have to work with the arrow. To avoid these difficulties, it is necessary to have several models of cutting tools for certain tasks.
Used for cutting branches up to 25 mm in diameter. Thicker wood can be trimmed with them, but fresh and undisturbed. Their purpose is to cut thin branches. The secateurs should be light and lie comfortably in the hand so that you exert as little effort as possible while working. The blades of high-quality secateurs hold well and therefore cut simply and cleanly without injuring the plants. However, they are only suitable for cutting thin branches and low trees and shrubs. For tall trees, it is better to choose pliers or high trimmers.
For removing branches with a thickness of 20 mm. The maximum thickness of a limb that can be cut with such a tool is 50 mm. In contrast to secateurs, they have extended handles that work according to the lever principle – this allows them to cut thick branches with minimal effort.
With their long handles, you can reach tall branches and go deep into the thicket of shrubs that are hard to reach with a pruner.
When choosing a lopper, look first at the durability of the handles. Plastic and cheap aluminum will break immediately. The cutting part should also be made of durable metal.
They differ from bars in that they have very long, often telescopic handles. The force to the cutting part is transmitted by ropes, cables, cables, or other more complex devices.
The tool is ideal for cropping and hygienic pruning of tall trees and hedges. Makes gardeners’ work much easier – they don’t have to carry diving loaders around in the garden. In addition, it is not so easy for the elderly to climb the ladder, and with the height the work is greatly simplified.
