Additional Info

Pruning shears also called hand pruners, or secateurs, are a type of scissors for use with plants. They are strong enough to prune hard branches of trees and shrubs, sometimes up to two centimeters thick. For large-leaved shrubs (e.g. laurel) a single sharp knife blade might be used instead. Loppers are a larger, two-handed, long-handled version for branches thicker than pruning shears can cut.
