About Us


Before we get started the Treehog brand is linked with Arbortec Forestwear. There was a need for a cost effective range of chainsaw protective and arborist equipment.The Treehog collection has developed quickly to include a broad offering of safety equipment for climbing, rigging and chainsaw protection, with new product sectors being developed all the time.

History of Arbortec

Arbortec - Born in 1990, the Arbortec Forestwear brand provided a breakthrough in comfortable chainsaw footwear and has grown to become a leading name in the arboriculture and forestry profession.

Followed a steady growth until 2010 when the company went through a succession phase, moving into the second generation of ownership.

By this time, the brand was ready for a re-fresh and the new management team brought to the table a change of direction based on experience and training from the outdoor pursuits sector.


Our head office is based in Norfolk UK, where our main innovation centre is located. We work with many arboriculture and forest associations around the world and attend many of the largest trade events in the industry.
