There are many tools you can use to prune a tree. A reciprocating saw makes quick work of medium-sized branches, say 5/8″ – 3″ in diameter.
If you only cut a couple of branches a year, then you can probably use whatever wood-cutting saw blades you have at your disposal. But if you’re tasked with cutting many or thicker branches, you’re going to want to consider picking up an appropriate saw blade.
I came across these Milwaukee Sawzall pruning blades on Amazon, and they seem to be recommended by most users. A faster, easier, more efficient way to cut green branches with a recip saw? Sign me up!
These 5 TPI pruning blades are available in 9″ and 12″ lengths. The link below leads to a 5-blade pack, but I’ll be on a mission to find single-blades locally.
