Electric tree pruners are sold at home improvement stores, but may not come fully assembled out of the box. Tree pruners are made by many manufacturers, such as Troy-Bilt and Corona. Any tree pruner from these manufacturers will require you to connect the blade assembly before using the pruner. Assemble the parts for your tree pruner by following simple instructions so you can start pruning your trees.
