Back once again to the stunning location of Westonbirt Arboretum – unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to enjoy the trees!Arb show Pol

As with any large event there is always plenty to do and with the Arb Show 2019 this was the case - with over 6000 items priced, transported and displayed with everyone pulling together and a huge effort from all involved we have pulled off our biggest and best Arb show display ever!

The big hit was the 3.5m truss that was used to highlight climbing & lowering kit including the formidable GCRS system – what a beast! Great work by Adam, Roy & the rets of the guys from Acer Tree Surgeons along with Tony Darbyshire of Sawpod Ltd. Being able to try a harness & the other climbing accessories, Petzl Zigzags & the Chicanes (which sold out on day 1!) was a real hit with all who visited us.Arb show Pol 3

Thanks to Dave Garry from DMM for bringing along the tensile tester and keeping us on our toes with every test making us jump!!

With the additional help & support from Keith Pinnock of Tranemo, Richard Mostyn from Papertrail and Raphael Dianon from Francital for the Sorbus launch of the Francital range of chainsaw protective trousers completed a truly International field!

The people we met at the show and the feedback after has been great:

“By far the best stand & biggest display of climbing & lowering equipment, PPE & other goodies at the show” – Paul Merry – Arborist & Lecturer Bridgwater & Taunton College. Arb show Pol 2

Thanks to all involved and for those who came to see us, see you all there in 2020 for an even bigger & better show!
