Forests provide some of the highest levels of biodiversity on the planet offering huge potential for research and exploration.

Access to the canopy has always proved an obstacle and over the past 5 decades kept scientists and explorers occupied in trying to find most efficient, cost effective and scientifically compatible method possible.

Climbing is an affordable, mobile and low impact method to gain access to the forest canopy.  Advancements in equipment and technical knowledge over the past 50 years have opened up opportunities to not only access but work safely and efficiently in these environments.

Sylvana Alta provides trained professionals from both rope access and arboricultural to manage and carry out safe and successful work at height.  Whether you want to collect your own data and climb every tree yourself or remain firmly on the ground Sylvana Alta will provide experienced personal, training, information and guidance for any part of your project.
