One way you can counter the criminal threat is by registering your assets and reporting thefts on Arbsafe.

arbsafe.co.uk

The website enables users to keep a register of equipment on a secure server, report thefts and shows crime hotspots.

Arbsafe is an initiative by ARBTALK and sponsored by Stihl GB as a direct response to the continued increase in crime targeted at the tree care industry. Arbsafe provides a publicly searchable database of any stolen equipment registered within its pages, its ultimate goal to act both as a deterrent to criminals and also to assist with reuniting owners with their stolen assets.
