Seán Lenihan of Kestrel Forestry Consultants Ltd. is delighted to have acquired the Irish agency for ARS and believes it will complement the existing agencies which the company controls for TUBEX Tree Shelters and Distein Forest Marking Paint.  “ I had been looking around for quite some time for a company which manufactured the range of tools required for most forestry operations.  Some companies produced excellent loppers and secateurs but did not have pruning saws and vica versa.  ARS had the complete package and I was very impressed with their product range and company history “



Kestrel Forestry launched the ARS range of secateurs, pruning saws, loppers and pole saws at the Irish Forestry Woodland and Bio-Energy show in Birr in May 2011 and and the response from the visitors was amazing with really positve comments from contractors and growers alike.
