What is ArboTag

ArboTag is a tag system to identify trees consisting of a label, a nail, a special hammer and a magazine. The way the tag is fixed to the plant is preventing its inclusion in the bark. Tags move along the nail as the tree grows and are eventually expelled without causing damage to the bark. This ensures that the label remains visible for many years.

ArboTag is fast to apply and allows a high working speed. The durability of the label and the great visibility of the number and text ensures easy reading even after many years. Thanks to ArboTag, urban tree populations can be efficiently marked, facilitating periodic monitoring and maintenance activities.
