Working at height


Tree surgery

As we’re sure you are aware, tree surgery can be a dangerous profession and you must have a fair amount of training and safety gear to perform the role well. Many years ago this profession was far more dangerous than it is now as safety equipment was much less advanced but nowadays we have a variety of advanced items that are designed to keep climbers safe at all times. Of course, harnesses are key to this role and every modern tree surgeon will use these and know how to handle the rope work. Without the harness, tree surgery would be a great deal more dangerous.
