Diameter Tape

Another essential tool for an arborist is a Diameter Tape, and the Richter 5m Fibreglass Diameter Tape is a popular choice. Its claw feature ensures a secure grip on the bark, while the fibreglass material makes it durable and resistant to stretching. This Diameter Tape is ideal for taking accurate diameter measurements of trees and is marked in metric units. It’s an indispensable tool for arborists.

Numbered Tree Tags

To mark trees for identification or inventory purposes, we recommend using our Aluminium Numbered Tree Tags. These round tags are made from high-quality aluminium and come in packs of 100 and 1000, from numbers 1-7000. The numbered tags allow for easy identification and organisation of trees in forests, parks, and any other outdoor spaces. The aluminium material means they are rust-resistant. An essential for any arborist working on large projects.


For measuring the diameter of trees quickly and accurately, we recommend the Haglof Mantax Calipers. These calipers are lightweight and easy to use, and the 80cm length makes them ideal for measuring larger trees or logs. With their lightweight and ergonomic design, they are easy to handle and great for use in the field. The Haglof Mantax Calipers are a popular choice among arborists.
