Lowering operations

Lowering in arboriculture is the operation of lowering branches, pieces of tree, logs, etc with a system of rigging equipment, ropes and pulleys, so that the branch can reach the ground at a controlled speed and angle.

This ensures that there is no damage when big branches are cut, or when there are power lines, houses, etc below a tree.
