Great and informative article, thank you. I can't imagine having to prune that much!
I'm curious why your photos of pruners, saws and sissors are missing loppers. Besides a regular pair, I found telescoping (bypass) loppers at Big Lots a couple of years ago and they are great! I use them on my large Sagos and some palms - anything small enough for them to get with one or two cuts or too large for prunners - the tool reaches in and slices off old bottom leaves without hurting me - (long sleeves and gloves are still a given). You are too knowledgable for me to be saying this - so perhaps I'm missing something - but if you really aren't using a pair, I'd recommend a trip to the store.

probably a very good idea, and I may have to got out and get some... would be good for Sago palms and the like!
