What Tool Will Cut Bird of Paradise Leaves?

Zone 8 | Anonymous added on September 22, 2012 | Answered

I have 5 bird of paradise plants that have not been pruned in years. The plant does not look its best but still blooms profusely. I've tried all types of pruning shears, saws, even a machette. What can I use to cut these tough stems?

The best tools are sharp, clean shears or pruners. If all else fails, you can use a sawzall or reciprocal type saw. These power saws typically have disposable blades and can remove the tough branches rather easily.
