Pruning shears, also called hand pruners (in American English), or secateurs, are a type of scissors for use on plants. They are strong enough to prune hard branches of trees and shrubs, sometimes up to two centimetres thick. They are used in gardening, arboriculture, farming, flower arranging, and nature conservation, where fine-scale habitat management is required.

There are three different blade designs for pruning shears: anvil, bypass and parrot-beak. Anvil pruners have only one blade, which closes onto a flat surface; unlike bypass blades it can be sharpened from both sides and remains reliable when slightly blunt. Anvil pruners are useful for cutting thick branches; one can bite into the stem from one direction, swing the handle around and bite further through narrowed wood from another direction. Bypass pruners usually work exactly like a pair of scissors, with two blades "passing by" each other to make the cut. At least one of the blades will be curved: a convex upper blade with either a concave or straight lower one. Some bypass designs have only one blade, the lower jaw being broad (like an anvil) but passing the upper jaw. The ratchet pruner, which can handle stems thicker than two centimeters, fits in this category. Parrot-beak pruners consist of two concave passing blades, which trap the stem between them to make the cut. These are suitable only for narrower stems.

Using Pruning Shears Using Pruning ShearsTo use pruning shears, slip the branch to be cut between the blades of the shears and use the handles to squeeze the blades shut. This cutting motion will slice the blades into the branch and remove the branch from the plant. Always use shears that are an appropriate size for the branch you wish to cut. For example, half-inch shears should be used to cut only branches that measure one half-inch in diameter or less; using too small shears on a larger branch can snap the blades off the gardening tool. (Just ask this gardener who managed to break her pruning shears!) The best way to use pruning shears to prune a bush or shrub is to begin by removing any dead wood or diseased branches from the plant. Always cut at the base of a branch rather than in the middle or near the end. Next remove any unwanted growths including overly tall branches, new shoots growing from the ground, and any branches sticking out from the main section of the plant. Finally, if your bush is of the blooming variety, remove any dead flowers by snipping the bloom off at the base. To clean and sanitize your shears, simply scrape off the plant debris with a rag or steel brush and then wipe down that blades with one part bleach to one part water. Always store your pruning shears in a dry place when not in use to prevent rust and other damage. Buying Pruning Shears When buying pruning shears, one of the most important things to consider is the type of shears; anvil shears tend to be cheaper than bypass shears. The reason for this price difference is that bypass shears result in cleaner cuts than anvil shears. Therefore, you should consider what you will be using your shears for in order to best determine the type you need. For example, if you just want to prune some large bushes or small trees, anvil shears can be the right tool for the job. If, however, you plan to prune smaller or more delicate plants like rose bushes, then you may want to consider a pair of bypass shears. Pruning ShearsAfter you have determined the type of pruning shears you need, the second most important thing to take into account when buying shears is the sturdiness and durability of the tool. Cheap shears can and do break easily. You should therefore select pruning shears that have strong carbon-steel or composite blades. Depending on how much work you plan to do, you may also want to consider a pair of shears with covered handles. If you choose shears with a spring mechanism, make sure the locking mechanism will remain place when closed but that is also fairly easy to open. Garden tools that come with manufacturer warranties tend to be of better quality than less expensive off-brands. Like other gardening tools, pruning shears can be purchased at most garden stores, both large and small. Pruning shears or pruning shears are gardening tools that are useful for cutting back bushes and shrubs as well as for trimming smaller branches from trees. Available at most gardening stores, hand shears are an easy-to-use must-have garden tool for any gardener.
