Equipment Sales


Equipment sales

Good equipment makes any job easier, whether pruning, digging, sawing or birdwatching. At Macphail Woods, we’ve rigorously tested many brands of pruners, saw and shovels until we’ve found the right tool for the job.

All profits from our equipment sales help to fund our many non-profit activities from school ground naturalization plantings to public land restoration to environmental education.

We are happy to be dealers for Big Bear Tools and Bulldog Tools which supply a number of great outdoor items such as pruners, pruning saws, axes, arborist equipment, shovels and more.

Pruning

At Macphail Woods, we prune a lot of trees and shrubs. The sharper the saw, the cleaner the cut and the faster the wound seals itself against infections and pests.

For years we’ve used Silky pruning saws for all of our pruning, from maintaining small plants to pole-pruning mature trees. These saws are sharp, efficient and durable making the job all the easier. While there is a lot of skill and knowledge required to prune well, a dull or poor blade can make honing your technique even more difficult.

Learn How to Prune

If you are interested in pruning, check our events calendar to see when we are offering free workshops on pruning. If you want an in-depth hands-on pruning course, take a look at our School of Woodland Ecology courses.

We promise great quality advice and products and all funds go towards supporting the myriad of non-profit activities that Macphail Woods does across PEI.


Here are some of our favourite Silky Saws

We keep a small selection of all of these saw in stock at our Nature Centre. Come on out while our Native Plant Nursery is open to take look or call to make an appointment. If you are looking for another Silky product, take a look at the Big Bear website and we can order anything within 2 weeks.
