Italian rental company I.B.A. Crane has installed the Vatican’s main Christmas tree in St. Peter’s Square using a Grove GMK5250L-1 all-terrain crane.


The five-axle 250-tonne capacity crane handled the 113-year-old tree that was donated by the Sustainable Forest Authority of Trentino Alto Adige. The tree measured 28 m tall and weighed approximately 8 tonnes.
