Innovations Tree Care & Tree Climbing 2019

In 2019, interesting products will also be ready for the market and hopefully will be on the market soon! Especially on our social media channels Facebook and Instagram we regularly show you exciting new developments and prototypes that generate a lot of anticipation. Whether at the Baumpflegetagen in Augsburg, at the TCI EXPO in the USA or during discussions on site, the manufacturers regularly present us with new products that only come onto the market later.

Many of the announcements arouse desire and require patience until you can finally order them. With some products we can hardly wait to finally hold them in our hands and use them ourselves in the tree. Therefore we have summarized for you which novelties you can look forward to in 2019 and what you unfortunately have to wait longer for.

What’s new for arborists in 2019?

We are also used to the fact that it regularly takes longer than initially announced. Therefore, all dates and the expected price are without guarantee. As soon as the products are available in our Online-Shop, we will inform you immediately on our social media channels. So the best thing to do is subscribe to our channels and don’t miss any news!
