Tree and Forestry

While we cover lots of landscaping tools, many reviews focus on tree and forestry tools. Our tree and forestry tool reviews include chainsaw reviews and pole saw reviews. They also include log splitter reviews, stump grinder reviews, wood chipper reviews, and more. When covering these tree and forestry tools, we really focus on the three pillars of power, durability, and safety. Without any one of these three, the tools do not hold up well under intensive use. When you’re dealing with trees, you can’t afford to lose time when a tool underperforms or fails prematurely. Forestry Tool Reviews Technology is constantly changing. The introduction of cordless forestry tools is altering the way chainsaws get used above ground. New battery-powered solutions provide less noise and vibration. They even introduce more safety features for those working high above the ground—no pull start, for example. These new products may even increase your chances of winning some municipal and residential landscaping jobs.

Salsco 6235B Chipper

Salsco 6235B Chipper Preview

I can’t look at a wood chipper without thinking of the movie “Fargo.” It’s a delightful little crime drama, directed by the Coen Brothers, set in a sleepy little Minnesota town.
