If you live on a lot with plenty of trees, then each spring sees you up on the ladder, using a handsaw to prune unhealthy or unsightly branches. To make quicker, easier work of the job, add an electric pole saw to your arsenal. With an adjustable, telescoping pole, the Remington Branch Wizard extends your natural reach by up to 10 feet, and its motor provides all the power you need to cut through tree limbs with ease. You can remain standing on your own two feet, and when you want to use the saw separately, simply detach it from the pole. Available at Amazon; $114.99.
