A day in the life of an Arborist. Certified Arborist, Rick Denbeau, talks about the importance of proper gear and the care for our trees.

An arborist is someone who takes care of trees. Rick is a residential arborist, so he takes care of trees in residential neighborhoods and for private homeowners. Being an arborist is very hard work. It’s not just difficult work, it’s also very gratifying.

Statistically, working in the tree care industry is one of the more dangerous jobs. It doesn’t have to be that way. The right equipment is a big part of making the industry safer. The essential pieces of equipment can vary depending on what type of arborist they are. The climbing arborist needs a specific set of gear. They need their head, eye, ear, and leg protection for when they’re running their chainsaws.

Providing the right gear can make a huge difference. An example is Arborwear’s RAC chaps. Arborwear took the chap and revolutionized it and made it a far superior product to wear everyday as an arborist. Testing the products arborists use is very important. These are things that keep arborists comfortable, warm, and dry, and they allow arborists to do a good job.
