The replacement of these tools usually costs thousands of pounds and in some cases insurance companies have six weeks to settle any claims.

Don't forget to use Arbsafe

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.
