As urbanisation pushes parks into tighter spaces, arborists need to find quieter and more efficient ways to do their work. The profession comes with a unique set of challenges – arborists have to climb trees with heavy equipment while looking out for the safety of both themselves and people below.
CORE - The Future Arborist rethinks the tools that arborists use to do their work. A harness powered by the sustainable energy of electricity helps arborists scale trees with unparalleled ease, while an assistant drone alerts arborists to the presence of nearby pedestrians, allowing them to focus on the task at hand fully. Last but not least, a lightweight saw, for weight is the enemy high above the ground. A reduction in weight increases blade rotation and extends how far arborists can reach, maximising their efficiency, speed, and overall comfort.
