Over the years my husband and I have paid several thousand dollars for tree work. Well, I just was not in the mood to pay someone to cut off low limbs on some of the trees in the yard. I knew I would need something to help me reach the limbs, but knew I could not stand on a ladder. If I get very far off the ground I get dizzy…but I was determined to find a way.
This 4ft. 11in. 80+ old granny is stubborn and likes doing anything she can herself. I was looking through an ad from a store where I shop and saw the tool pictured above. My brain went to spinning and I declared that with that tool and the extra reach it would give me I could get those tree limbs cut off. The tool had rave reviews and some were by older women like me.
That tool is one of the best purchases I ever made. It is very easy to use. Two trees are all done and look great if I must say so myself. Three more trees to go and the yard will be looking much better. I am so happy that I saved hundreds of dollars, got exercise and enjoyed cutting off those limbs.
Naturally there may at some point be tree work I can’t do, but I will do what I can now that I have a great tool to help. It works well for pruning tall shrubs too.
Thank you, Fiskars for your extendable pruning stik. I was not, nor will not be compensated in any way for bragging on this pruning tool. 🙂
