Any activities performed at heights require proper fall protection. Arborist work is a special type of work at heights which is performed in the crown of trees. Regardless of the task assigned, whether it's crown cutting, or protection against damage, arborists need equipment which not only protects them against falling, but also ensures proper freedom and comfort of movement.
