Lakewood Products: Suppliers of forestry and horticultural pruning tools
Lakewood Products was established in 2005 to design, manufacture and sell the P100 Pro-Pruner pruning lopper, designed specifically for plantation forestry tree pruning.
The design was based on the recognition of the need for a high quality, low maintenance lopper specifically designed for forestry pruning work. Throughout the design process feedback was sought from the forestry industry and taking onboard forestry workers’ views on their requirements for a heavy-duty pruning lopper.
The P100 Pro-Pruner was well received by the industry (both domestic and international) and is highly regarded for its non-sliding double action cutting system, low maintenance (and simple to maintain), ease of use and clean cut. The initial design was subsequently modified and the smaller, lighter version - the P50 Pro-Pruner forestry pruning lopper was introduced to the market. Both the P50 and P100 are assembled in New Zealand from a combination of local and overseas components.
It was quickly realised that these loppers were also suited to heavy pruning work in horticultural industries and have proved popular for orchard and vine pruning where larger cuts are required.
In 2013 the Pro-Pruner range was extended to include pruning loppers for the horticultural industry, and the P30 & P40 Pro-Pruner pruning lopper models were designed specifically to meet the demands of the orchard, kiwifruit and vineyard industries for reliable, durable pruning loppers suited to more general pruning tasks. These are lighter models based on the same design principles, strong build and easy maintenance, as the P50 and P100 pruning loppers.
Pro-Pruner loppers can be purchased in New Zealand via this website or from a number of retail outlets throughout the country. Internationally they are available in Australia, Brazil, Chile, Canada and USA. Please see International Outlets for details.
