Pole Saws

Do you guys use a pole saw for limbing higher branches? Do you stand on a ladder with a chainsaw? Do you outsouce this work?

I'm looking for a good pole saw, and wanted to know which ones people have had a good (or bad) experience with?

Cetain things to look for when buying?

Pole Saws

Standing on a ladder with a chainsaw is a good way to end up on YouTube. Or worse.

Silky makes nice stuff for pruning. Otherwise a stihl 131 power pole saw works well for taking trees down.

Some of the best money I've got ever spent was for a stihl pole saw.

What are you calling "higher"? A Silky has much more reach than a Stihl pole saw, but is much slower going.
