The forestry industry is tasked with creating, managing, using, conserving, and repairing forests, woodlands, and associated resources to meet the varying needs of humankind and the environment. One pressing issue that the industry faces is dealing with tree removal. When a tree dies, it can fall at any time and create dangers to those nearby. Their removal, then, is critical, and part of that process must include proper labeling prior to removal.

Importance of Marking

The roll flagging or flagging tape used to mark dead trees serve the purposes of alerting others to the dangers of these trees and informing personnel which ones are slated for removal. The first step is to label the appropriate trees, and the next step, of course, is to take down the trees and remove them. However, there is another crucial step: retrieving the flags from the area afterward in order to maintain a clean environment.

Green Options

Fortunately, there is an option that keeps our landscapes green and saves time: the use of biodegradable roll flags, like those offered by Presco. Our roll flagging simplifies the tree removal process while keeping trash out of our forestland. The markers are easily identifiable and a perfect choice for maximizing efficiency for forestry procedures. Presco Biodegradable Roll Flagging is today’s most environmentally friendly marking solution. Made of non-woven cellulosic material derived from wood pulp, this flagging is completely non-toxic to humans, animals, and the environment.Complete degradation will occur outdoors in six to twenty-four months, depending on the climate and environmental conditions.

Specialized Flags

In addition to the biodegradable flagging, we have other solutions geared toward serving our world’s flora and fauna. Presco’s forestry product line includes Danger Tear Flags for use on logging trucks. These flags are red to signal danger and are constructed from heavy, 3 mil co-extruded polyethylene material, perforated for convenient dispensing. The flags can be stapled, nailed, taped or tied to overhanging loads for a fast, highly visible warning of a potential hazard.
