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.

Husqvarna 36V Chainsaw This is Lithium-Ion Powered

Husqvarna T535i XP 36V Chainsaw Review

Lithium-ion powered Outdoor Power Equipment (OPE) is taking off at a ridiculous pace. We had the first major push in the 40V lines become mainstream last year just in time for EGO to blow us away with their 56V lineup. This year, we see even more coming out with Worx adding a 58V platform, and […]

Black and Decker 40V Chainsaw Review

I love cutting down large trees with chainsaws. There’s something about the experience of setting your notch, driving through the back of the trunk, and then standing back and watching something God took 50 years to grow slowly crash to the ground. But while that’s fun, the truth is, most people use chainsaws to cut […]

GreenWorks 80V Chainsaw Review

When I was a kid I lived near the Rocky Mountains of Montana for a couple years with my father. One of his closest friends had a rather large family, and they took us on a salmon snag-fishing adventure that included, among other things, sleeping outside in an honest-to-goodness hand-made American Indian teepee. It was […]

EGO 56V Cordless Chainsaw Review

It’s clear that we’ve been impressed to-date with most of the tools from the EGO 56V cordless tools line. It’s not that battery powered tools are the right solution for every single application. More and more, however, these are the pros and serious DIYers are turning to when they come home to do their landscaping […]

GreenWorks Cordless Pole Saw Review G-Max 40V 8-inch

As far as 40V outdoor power equipment reviews go, chainsaws are always my favorite. As such, it was a good day when the GreenWorks Cordless Pole Saw arrived. This is a 40V model in their G-Max line of cordless yard tools. We’ve already reviewed both their 40V cordless lawn mower and their 40V cordless trimmer (which was […]
