To begin with the obvious, the pruner’s sole job is to cut plants in your yard, garden or farm. It’s far superior to a knife, and much better than snapping things off with your hands. Pruners are meant to cut branches about an inch or less, while loppers are more robust and cut medium-sized branches. They are essential tools for your winter or early spring garden maintenance. While there are no leaves on your trees or shrubs, winter can cause damage to branches both big and small, which will require your attention. So if you’re simply looking for reassurance that you need a pruner, you can stop reading here and go select a pruner that meets your budget and look like the best pruning shears to you.
