The ARB Show 2019 Review

The ARB Show 2019 sponsored by STIHL is over for another year but fear not! The ARB Show will return to Westonbirt Arboretum on Friday 15th & Saturday 16th May 2020…

Almost 6,000 visitors enjoyed our annual celebration of the world of arboriculture over Friday 17th and Saturday 18th May.

Arborists enjoyed a spot of retail therapy, with plenty of choice and variety on offer from over 100 exhibitors. Huge thanks to the amazing team at STIHL for all their support and hard work. We’re proud to have had STIHL sponsoring the ARB Show for 15 consecutive years and without them, we wouldn’t be able to continue developing and growing the event. The same goes for our Exhibitors, who did such a great job this year; there were lots of innovative new activities going on at many of the stands.

Elsewhere around the showground the Arborists’ Workshop provided a great variety of talks with Paul Elcoat’s session on managing stress and the Forestry Commission pests and disease updates among the most well received. The Tree Climbers’ Forum also garnered some excellent feedback, offering dedicated training sessions on 4 different subjects each day.

The 3ATC UK Open competitions trees were busy with over 50 climbers taking part across 3 categories. Tom Rowe won the Novice category and Rob Cardus finished top in the Expert competition. Timothe Querlioz was thrilled to win the Premier category

“I can’t believe I won it! It’s very motivating for the future.”

Congratulations to Joe Paxton who is the winner of this year’s ARB Show prize draw and wins a STIHL top-handled MS 201 TC-M chainsaw worth over £800!

It was great to see so many enthusiastic and engaged tree people over the 2 days; the brilliant atmosphere on site speaks to a fantastic arb community of passionate people keen to learn, share knowledge, develop and support each other as professionals.

The ARB show 2019 was well worth a visit. We tried our hand at axe throwing, enjoyed a walk through the Westonbirt Arboretum, marvelled at the wood carving and admired all the latest gadgets!
