The Q&A Archives: Tools for Pruning Fruit Trees

Question: What is the best tool for pruning dwarf fruit trees?

Answer: It depends on the diameter of the limb or branch that you are pruning. Bypass pruners are used for limbs up to about 1/2 inch. These are better than anvil pruners for this purpose. Loppers work well on branches up to about 1-1/4 inch. Use a pruning saw for anything larger.
