#pillsofarboriculture: Consolidation of trees


This #pill is about the theme of the consolidation of trees, that is to say, the positioning of cables within the tree crown in order to avoid the break and fall of significant parts of a tree. The consolidation needs to be monitored and in some cases also replaced, because trees are in constant movement and development, even though they appear to be sedentary.


Ezio Rochira, Formazione 3T, presents “video-pills” that shed some light on trees and on the operators who manage them: arborists. Who are they? What do they do? What does it mean to manage trees in an urban context, or to prune and fell trees in tree-climbing? Which emergency measures can be undertaken? What are the extra cares needed while working on trees in an urban context populated by many vehicles? How should an ornamental tree be pruned?
