It depends on what you will be doing. You could also flip the question around and ask why by a planer if you have a jointer? And if you only ever work with 3/4 s4s wood you could theoretically get away with a 1” jointer if it existed. And none of the tools listed are “needed” . All that said I have a 6” jointer I use all the time, and have never owned a planer. This is something if you ask 100 people you will get 102 different answers.
