Precautions while using Garden Tools
Trees and shrubs are pruned annually to keep them healthy and attractive. Pruning is also done to remove diseased and or dead limbs or stems. Limited pruning can be done with flower shears. Large branches or woody stems require large pruners or loppers. Pruning is hard work, and it involves repetitive motion; for this reason, selecting the right tool for the job on hand is extremely important. Factors such as the purpose of pruning, types of pruners available, when the pruning is to be done summer or fall , and types of plant material to be pruned must be considered before selecting the pruner. Smaller jobs such as pruning flower bushes and thin branches can easily be carried out with hand pruners. Loppers and saws are needed for cutting through thick tree limbs and branches.
