What are the Best Tools for Tree Care?

tools for tree care

If you’re looking to care for your trees, there are plenty of tools that can help. Here we’ll discuss a few of our favourites.


A shovel is a must-have tool for any tree care worker. Shovels are used to dig holes for planting trees, move soil around when planting trees, dig up roots of trees and move mulch.

Chain Saw

The chain saw is one of the most common tools used in tree care. This handheld power tool has a motor that turns a chain, which cuts through wood and debris. Chain saws can be dangerous if not used properly and care should be taken while operating them to avoid injury.

While they are very useful in clearing an area or cutting down trees, it is important to remember that they are loud and can damage hearing if used improperly. They also produce sparks that can start fires if not handled properly during use or storage. If you plan on using this type of tool often, wear safety equipment including: helmets for protection against falling branches; goggles for eye protection from flying debris; gloves for gripping onto handles; pants with knee pads; steel-toed boots for foot protection from falling objects; earplugs or earmuffs to protect your ears from being damaged by the sound coming out of the chain saw


A pruner is essentially a saw with a handle. It can be used to trim branches, prune trees, cut back tree limbs and remove uninvited branches from your trees. You can also use it for dead or diseased branches or suckers that emerge from the base of your tree.

If you need to cut down large amounts of branches quickly then a chainsaw might be better for you over a hand-held tool like this one because it does require more strength than other types of tools do but otherwise this will work just fine if all you’re doing is trimming some smaller twigs here and there around your yard!


A trowel is a hand tool used to mix small amounts of soil, sand, or cement. It can also be used to spread granular materials like mulch or fertilizer around plant beds and gardens. The most common type of trowel has a rectangular blade and is about 6-10 inches long. Trowels come in many sizes, but you’ll want to select one that’s comfortable for you to hold and use for the amount of work you do with it (larger ones are easier for larger jobs).

If you’re laying down some mulch in your garden beds, just take your trowel by the handle and scoop up some of the material with its blade—this will give you an idea as to how much material will fit into each scoopful so that you don’t overfill any area while spreading it out evenly across all areas where it needs to go. After every 2-3 scoopsfuls have been laid down on top of each other in one spot (depending on how deep down inside), flip over onto its edge so that its blade scrapes off extra dirt from underneath before flipping back over again for more scooping action!

You can get cheap ones at hardware stores like Lowe’s or Home Depot by looking through their gardening departments; however if given enough time they should last forever unless they get dropped somehow which would probably break them anyways so no worries there đŸ™‚

Hand Rake

A hand rake is a tool that you will want to have in your tree care arsenal. It can be used for the following purposes:

  • Removing leaves and debris from the ground
  • Aerating soil
  • Removing weeds from around your trees
  • Smoothing lawns

Compost Bin

Compost bins are containers for composting, a process of decomposition that occurs as organic matter decays. Compost is useful in gardening and landscaping because it improves the soil’s ability to retain water and nutrients. There are many different types of compost bins, each made from different materials: plastic, wood or metal.

Compost bins can be round or rectangular in shape; some have lids while others do not. Many city governments offer free compost bins if you’re unable to purchase one on your own.

These are some tools that can help you care for your trees

Tree care tools are essential for any gardener or landscaper. Here are some of the best ones on the market.

  • A tree saw is a must-have for any tree care professional, as it allows you to cut through branches with ease without damaging the trunk or other parts of your trees.
  • Pruning shears can also be useful in pruning back unwanted branches from your plants and trees. They’re designed to make quick work out of trimming away dead wood, damaged limbs, and other problematic areas on your plants and trees so that they can continue growing healthy foliage above ground level instead of being weighed down by unhealthy growth below ground level which could eventually lead to disease or rot if left untreated for too long without proper care (or worse). Also good for cutting out bushier shrubbery patches when needed during springtime maintenance chores like lawn mowing/trimming/edging services performed by professional landscapers who specialize solely within this type service area since these types typically don’t come equipped standardly equipped with such machinery themselves due primarily because they’re just one aspect among many others outside their scope–which means they’d have nowhere necessarily available anyway unless hired privately outside larger companies where such equipment may actually exist but only rarely used.”


There you have it—a list of some of the best tools to use when caring for your trees. We hope this guide will help you find the perfect tools for your needs and keep those beautiful trees healthy and thriving!
