The London tree surgery team at Take A Bough Tree Care have been replacing their equipment with battery operated models. Tree surgery traditionally uses petrol powered tools which are noisy and produce noxious fumes, however, equipment powered by rechargeable batteries are super quiet in operation, produce zero emissions and provide high levels of efficiency and safety for the tree surgeon.

Tree surgeons will be required to meet the new emissions laws due to come into being in 2019 and replacing petrol powered equipment with battery powered tools will be a major step in the right direction.
