#pillsofarboriculture: Working with elevating platforms


Alessandro Savognin, Formazione 3T: arborists use both techniques of tree climbing and also elevating platforms, when they are useful or necessary. Using elevating platforms involves strict criteria and safety measures.


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?
