Manual saws are cheap, lightweight, and work without gas or electricity. Definitely a good thing to have this winter as ice storms have resulted in numerous downed trees, broken branches, and power outages. As a result, a few saws were purchased.
A single folding saw, the Bahco Expert PG-72, was purchased for it's compact size and portability. It should be excellent for branches under a 4" diameter.
Several bow saws were purchased for cutting larger tree branches more efficiently.
