    AM Leonard or Gemplers for starters. Do a search for McKenzies Nursery Supply in Madison, Ohio.

    We use Felco 2 pruners mostly... a couple varitions here and there. About $30 ish

    Hand hedge trimmers and lopers, commercial grade Coronas varying from $45 to $65 depending on size and vendor

    Folding hand saw - coronas - about $12 to $14 I think

    13" pruning "turbo" saw - corona - about $20 - but I think I'm off.

    There just isn't anything better then a Felco. Either a 2 or a 5 or if you want luxery a 7 with the rotating hand grip:D

    Felco 2 and 5 should be standard equipment for any pruning job. saw a felco leather scabbard that had a place for pruners and then a place for a folding or utility knife. pretty sweet.
    WolfGarten make some impress folding and hand and pole saws.

    I have never heard of Felco in Sacramento, but I only use Corona, they have served me well.

    I buy the cheapest felco I can find because I tend to lose them alot. Just something for you to think about. Harvestman
