Annie, have you ever thought about getting a sawzall? I'm thinking that would take care of a whole lot of things you have to cut. I understand not getting a chain saw as we chose not to either. We've never had a chainsaw where the chain didn't come off or get hung up or some such aggravation. They're heavy & noisy & awkward.
We did get a sawzall & have never regretted doing so. The blades are cheap enough & you can even stick the blades into the ground to saw roots. They come battery operated & ours has plenty of power. You can cut down trees that aren't too big around & those branches & most limbs don't stand a chance against them.

Ours is similar to this:

You know, it is soooo funny you should say this because just a few weeks ago, when I was taking apart the cherry that got split in the wind, my neighbor (who is doing major remodeling work), came over with his SawsAll and cut down a big limb that would have taken me a half hour to get thru with a hand saw. He suggested I get one too because they are so versatile. I am definitely going to check this out. I've been renting a small batterypowered chain saw and it is very nice to use and can get thru some really big stuff. I will NEVER use a gas powered one again...we had one for a while and it was noisy, complicated, terrifying and always a hassle to get started. THANKS!
The end is nothing, the journey is all.

Oh you're so welcome! You can get different length blades too. They can flat out do some work.
