Here are a selection of pruning saws and more for November, tried and tested
PRUNING SAW & HOLSTER
This saw has triple ground teeth, a non-stick blade and an easy grip, non-slip rubber handle. It comes with a holster, which can be fitted to a belt if required. Blade length: 25cm (9¾in) and comes with a 10-year guarantee.
We found this saw to be very effective, working mostly on the pull cut. With its rubber handle, this saw was particularly comfortable to hold and it was easy to maintain a firm grip. The holster is a useful additional feature, especially as it can be attached to your belt.

HANDLE & PRUNING SAW
The package includes a handle and professional pruning saw. The handle has an adjustable length of 220-400cm (7¼-13ft), enabling tree pruning for high branches without the need for a ladder. Blade length: 36cm (14in). 10-year guarantee on the saw.
We liked the long, curved blade on this one and the sharp teeth. The handle has a place to rest the forefinger on, which allows you to position your hand comfortably around it. We found it cut into the branches smoothly. If you want to get to those higher branches, the extendable pole is a valuable asset.

BURGON & BALL
TEL: 0114 233 8262
PRODUCT CODE: N/A
This pocket-sized tool is perfect for a range of pruning tasks. We really liked the soft-grip handle which was comfortable in the palm and prevented any slipping. The blade, with its sharp, triple bevel teeth, cuts smoothly through appropriately sized branches. It was easy to open and close, with a crisp locking mechanism.
