Friends, beginning of It seems like every year since the our catalog Ive my career, in preparing this note for g tree work considered the topic How tough a livin the toughest is. These past few years have proven age home ever. The economy has pushed the aver ty care, and a owner to choose cheap work over quali kers seeking side effect has been an increase in wor heeding the cheaper tools. Sadly, cheap tools are but cheap tools call. No, not good tools getting cheap, becoming more available. SherrillTree Fortunately, and for the majority of t. Its not our customers, we dont bite. Thats righ lowest-quality belief that the cheapest saw steel or som eon e who carabin er is a good inve stm ent for of something depends on it for a living. Buying two as one at more that doesnt last as long or cut as fast opinion. But, of cost is simply not sensible shopping in my ts why you shop course, you may already know this. Tha f for less. at SherrillTreeyou want the good stuf -Tobe Sherrill

In order to better serve customers weve come up with additional information to assist in rope shopping. Weve taken great effort to answer a few questions that either arent addressed or simply dont have standardized methods for manufacturers to follow, like; knotability, elastic elongation, milk tendency and more. The most signicant new data (elastic elongation) was measured using our own testing equipment with supervision from rope acionado Michael House Tain. The effort was made to answer the age-old customer question how bouncy is that rope? making it easier to compare an unfamiliar rope to a familiar one. Results are on page 5.

ARBORIST ROPE CONSTRUCTION TYPES


3-Strand - Twisted constructions are abrasion resistant but a poor choice for climbing due to their bumpy surface and tendency to rotate (unwind) under tension. Good as natural crotch rigging line. Solid Braid - Made up of 12 large strands arborist-grade solid braid lines are woven tight to keep a round shape under tension, a process thats made eye-splicing nearly impossible... that is, until Grizzly Splicing came along. Less tendency to twist than other braided lines. Good for climbing or rigging. Hollow Braid - Another 12-strand construction but woven with considerably less tension leaving the center loose enough to accommodate an easy splice. Good for slings and xed lines but not for climbing or rigging due to snagging and picking when run over a rough surface. 16-Strand - This abrasion resistant rope construction presents a thick mantle (cover) around a small interior core bundle that helps keep the rope round under tension and makes it easy to tie. The thick mantle provides most of this popular climbing lines strength. Double Braid - This braid inside a braid remains round under tension even when running over pulleys and brake drums. Generally core and cover share equal load. Best for rigging duties, we offer a tight version (Super Braid) for greater dirt resistance when natural crotch rigging, and a loose version (Stable Braid) that is spliceable and best for block and tackle use. All have a eurathane coating and wear equally well. Kernmantle - The mantle (cover) of this rope is woven tight to provide protection for the load bearing core (up to 70%) strands which are not woven (parallel). Core strands can also be twisted like a slinky to add elasticity providing manufacturers a lot of exibility to manipulate the nished product based on intended use. Good for a wide range of duties. Arborist ascent lines of this construction are considered cover dependent kernmantles.

MATERIALS
Polyester - a synthetic polymer having lower stretch and higher tenacity and abrasion resistance than its close cousin Nylon. Melting point 480F Nylon - a synthetic polymer with more stretch and with less abrasion resistance than polyester. Rarely used in arborist grade lines. Melting point 460F Polyolen - a monolament sometimes used to bring a ropes weight down. Melting point 260 degrees Aramid - family of bers including Technora, Kevlar and Nomex that pound for pound are 5-times stronger than steel and have high abrasion and heat resistance. Poor ultra violet (UV) radiation resistance, mildly self-abrasive. Charring point 900F Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (HMPE) - Includes Spectra and Dyneema. This lightweight ber has super high strength and abrasion resistance but at a very low melting point. Good for use where heat friction is not involved. Melting point 297F

SHERRILL MEASURED DIAMETER - Customers often select ropes based on subtle variances in diameter. For example some prefer Tree Pro Red or True Blue for their beeer feel over others marketed as similar half-inch diameters. For this column we took our trusty micrometer and measured relaxed ropes (not under tension) to provide shoppers with accurate measurements (within 1/2 mm) right off the shelf. The Cordage Institute grants manufacturers a 5% variance in strength, length, weight and diameter of most nished rope products. MILKS - milking is when a ropes mantle (outer cover) elongates over its core, most often when new and due to friction hitch use that forces strands into maximum alignment. Milking usually shows up as a bubble of material that can be drawn to one end and trimmed with scissors. MATERIAL - see page 4 for descriptions of rope materials. KNOTABILITY (10 being excellent) - Ropes for rigging and SRT generally are not knot-friendly. Their stiff construction makes them more resistant to abrasion, but tougher to dress into a tight knot. SPLICEABLE - If you like to climb with a split tail (see page 46) then we recommend hand splicing the climbing ropes end, except for those ropes that are not hand-spliceable. A Grizzly splice can get lodged in a tight crotch when retrieved from the ground. ELASTIC ELONGATION (SHERRILL TESTED) - Manufacturers often perform this test by preloading their samples up to 1,000 pounds for 50 cycles, exhausting that new rope elasticity that climbers discover on the showroom oor. Following the ASNI standard we preloaded samples of every rope we sell 3 times to 200 lbs (still about 5-times reality) before giving it one last tug to 540 lbs from a relaxed state to better determine what elasticity youll discover when you take your line for a ride! ROUNDNESS UNDER LOAD (10 being round) - Its a fact that 12-strand ropes square off under load while doublebraid stays round under high tension even when trailing through blocks and tackle. SURFACE TEXTURE (10 being smooth) - This spec can be critical to prusik or friction hitch performance. WAX CONTENT (10 being high) - Sand, grit and dirt particles are the enemy of ropes because such particles become trapped inside the fabric and, like rocks in your shoe, slowly work their irritating destruction. Wax liquid, among other proprietary formulas, are added during the manufacturing process to help protect inner bers while offering lubrication that enhances tensile strength.

Of all users of life safety rope for industrial application, none are more abusive than tree workers. Bark dust, soil and grit pounded into climbing ropes are quite destructive to internal bers as the rope is stretched and relaxed in use. Manufacturers suggest washing life safety lines with non detergent soap and according to generally accepted guidelines detailed in the helpful tips section of our new web site.

Poison Ivy Fan 2005 International TC Champion

DAN KRAUS

For tree climbers, rope is among the top four most important tools for work efciency and comfortthe other three being the saddle, safety lanyard, and handsaw. Without good interaction among these tools and All Poison Ivy products have your hands, movement within the trees crown can be something less than been tweaked to offer climbers elegant. Popular among several of the worlds leading competition-level a slightly different and improved climbers, Poison Ivy is not only versatile for all climbing styles, but its feel that will not elongate, is spliceable on both ends and now affordable for all climbing budgets, too. Poison Ivy has a unique kernmantle construction that stays round meets CE standards in Europe! when pinched by camming mechanisms, yet it is unusually exible and knot friendly. This construction delivers one of the most static (non-elastic) characteristics available in spliceable arborist rope, ideal for traditional climbers looking for limited bounce and especially attractive to SRT (single rope technique) climbers longing to abandon the need for two lines when doubled rope tasks are on the days agenda. Beeer to the grip than other ascender-friendly lines, Poison Ivy is still small enough to feed freely through mechanical devices like ascenders and descenders. Unlike other arborist climbing lines, Poison Ivy has no noticeable coating or fabric treatment to make the line feel tacky or slippery when new. And last but not least is the Ivys tough camo-colored jacket! Although not completely invisible, especially among groundies anticipating rope, one of Poison Ivys primary appeals is to climbers who prefer to be heard, not seen. And, of course, if incognitos not your modus operandi, grab a big armful of high-visibility Poison High-vy See page 173 Shes pretty as a daisy, but look out, man, shes crazy.

Blue Bandit Splices verses Knots


Load the spreader tool and squeeze the handle to place a super-strong, thick rubber band over objects up to 1.5 inches diameter. Bands create a tight grip on spliced rope eyes or loop runners for improved carabiner positioning. Or a band can be placed directly on the carabiner itself to limit its ability to roll. Create your own applications! Blue Bandit Blue Bandit w/ 50 bands Pack of 50 bands 31271 - $16 31273 - $24 31272 - $10

Examples of Blue Bandit uses

A spliced rope termination generally retains around 90% of a ropes strength while knots cut strength to about 60%. Although a skilled knot-tyer can make a quick connection to about any snap, a splice presents a considerably smoother transition and without a loose end to potentially unravel. Carabiners and other connecting hardware can be quickly detached from a splice while knots can present a challenge to untie if loaded heavily. Knots and splices each have an important role in most industrial applications.

This molten-hot addition to the SherrillTree lineup is built by New England Rope and uses the new FlexiFirm Core Technology (trade name Tachyon) to deliver climbers a unique, low-stretch, toughskinned, triple-braid that stays round and rm under load. Unlike any line before it, Lava contains a unique third magma strand that provides spectacular support and density to both core and mantle. Lava provides excellent traction to both split-tails and ascenders, resulting in awless performance of doubled-rope (traditional) and single-rope climbing techniques. Lava ows smoothly through a wide array of modern mechanical devices, thanks to its small size and sleek jacket. Within each linear foot of its deep blue mantle burst glowing bright ecks of either hot orange or bright lime, delivering a distinctive and unique look that can be spotted from great distance.

Samson Solid-Braids (13 mm)


This solid-braid family of ropes is a good choice for climbing or rigging duties. Although a bit more elastic than their core/cover cousins (16-strand, double braids, etc.) solid braid ropes wear quite well in the face of natural crotch interaction. In fact some climbers prefer the way the rope furs-up with wear and tear. Although a bumpier ride than ropes with more strands, these lines are naturally twist-resistant due to design. Some of the differences youll find in the ropes on this page are listed on the rope specifications chart (page 5).

These three solid-braid ropes are available with a SherrillTree Grizzly Spliced eye. Just add a GS to the end of the ropes part code and $16 to the price.

ArborMaster Series (13mm)


Samson Rope Company utilizes a proprietary process that stabilizes this ropes core strands to perfectly match its jacket resulting in a 16-strand line that Samson can condently promote as non-milking. This means that youll never have to trim the lines end due to cover elongation created from friction hitch use, common with other 2-part ropes. It is because of this process that the rope is hand-spliceable on both ends!

Velocity (11 mm)


Designed for peak response from mechanical ascenders and small diameter split tails (8mm eye cords & Lockjack- page 47-46), Velocity delivers high performance to climbers both during ascent and during canopy exploration. Samsons proprietary Sure Grip technology gives Velocity a fully broken-in feel right out of the bag, making its moderately tacky grip one of the primary differences between it and the Fly.

Blaze (11 mm)


Blaze, the brainchild of Yale Ropes arborist account director Jamie Goddard, is designed especially for tree climbing and aimed at a need for lightweight, ascender-friendly, yet premium rope product that performs well when climbed with a friction hitch. As it turned out, Blaze caught re among climbers for all those reasons plus its ideal knot-tying characteristics. Over time, Blaze became the starting point for SherrillTrees exclusive offspringa slightly larger version in a camouage color thats now known as Poison Ivy. Blazes biggest fans are sure to be those who make regular use of mechanical devices like rope grabs (ascenders) or friction controllers See (descenders) because so many of these devices are designed for ropes ales e Y 9 to 11 mm in diameter.

Safety Blue & Hi-Vee (13mm)


Since my daddy was around is usually how the conversation starts with customers calling in for Safety Blue or Hi-Vee. New England knew very well what they were doing when they designed this premium climbing line back in the early 90s. Named for its blue core (that magically shows through if you nick it with 40ccs of screaming chainsaw), Safety Blue and High-Vee consist of tightly plied polyester surrounding brulated polypropylene strands that signicantly reduce the ropes weight without compromising rmness or roundness. So, whos your daddy now?

Rope Tarp
If youre looking for a recommendation on rope storage, simplicity meets function with the rope tarp. We all know the trouble with dispersing rope from a rolled hank, lay it on the ground and youll end up with a big fat wad on a leash! Rope is best stored loosely and in a random pattern for our type of work, and protection from dirt, fuel and sharp objects is simply a must. For this, a rope tarp is perfect. Pulling rope off a tarp is so easy you could literally re it out of a gun! When youre nished, drop the rope off the branch onto your rope tarp, roll it up and move on. It really is that easy, and youre gonna love the multi-uses! 58" by 46" Rope Tarp holds 1/2" ropes to 150' long 14864 - $28

Rope Wash Bag


Okay, heres the word. Some tree people wash their climbing ropes in the neighborhood laundromats tumble washer. There, I let the cat out of the bag. Just keep it to yourself! We can do better than that, and heres how it works: put your rope in our wash bag and draw the string tight. Put some mild detergent or dishwashing liquid in warm water and do the rhumba...maybe turn up a little Lynyrd Skynyrd. There are other devices for washing ropes, but none gets better results -that is until some greenhorn forgets to cinch down the bag and sends the local Maytag man on a killing spree!

HTP (High Tenacity Polyester) 10mm by Sterling Rope Company


After remarkable climbing opportunities with redwood expert Dr. Steve Sillett and research friends, it became abundantly clear that what I had previously thought was the best static line for SRT ascent (rope walking), simply wasnt. Dr. Sillett proved beyond doubt that Sterling high-tenacity polyester (HTP) had the least stretch and toughest jacket of the four most popular lines on the market. Sillett and his companions have likely logged more vertical feet on static line than anyone today, perhaps any group of climbers in history, often ascending the worlds tallest trees several times a day and for months on endIm talking 150+ feet just to the rst branch! After several personal climbs on Sterling HTP, Im convinced that the growing number of professional arborists practicing single rope tree climbing will truly enjoy this low-stretch product.

Stable Braid

Double-braid rope is the most commonly used rope for rigging trees because of its high strength and low stretch. The name describes this ropes construction, 2 ropes in one. The inner core is protected Good abrasion resistance by a tightly woven outer jacket, creating a very strong, exible line Excellent exibility Moderate break-in time required with low stretch characteristics. In the nal stage of manufacturing, Stable Braid ropes are dip-coated in a bath of liquid Samthane that Moderate stretch dries into an abrasion-resistant shell. This coating does wear over High UV resistance time, but adds a great deal of life to the rope that it protects. Spliceable (eye, 1 end) Unlike the Super-Braid (below), this line is spliceable. Stable Braid is designed to be used with false crotch blocks and other rigging hardware so you can take full advantage of its strength and durability.

SherrillTree customer Steve Costa of Groveland California recently tracked me down at a west coast tree care show to explain what an awesome product Black Widow has Only 1.6 lbs! been for his small business. Steve explained in vivid detail how his rigger climbs some of the largest conifers in the world with Black Widow in a hip-side bag, attaches the end to the tree and tosses the bag out through the canopy to the ground crew, much like a water rescuer does to his victim. From there workers can hand-apply signicant tension or use the Widow to tow a larger line into position (if high tension is required). Its the rst thing I take out of the truck when weve got big, thick canopy trees to pull. And you can quote me on that!

Dynasorb Energy-Absorbing Rigging Line


What have we learned about energy absorption when it comes to dynamic activities that test the limits of ropes and wood? For one, weve learned that tensile strength alone is not all its cracked up to be. For example, no one needs to spell out the result of bungee jumping using high-strength cable instead of (signicantly weaker) elastic rope. Although an extreme example, the physics are virtually identical when arresting other falling loads, including tree parts. No, not because the load shouldnt be injured, rather to lessen forces capable of cracking an anchor point or snapping high-strength ropes. Not only are such shattering forces the inspiration for modern tree cabling systems like Cobra and TreeSave, but they are also the reason many arborists are choosing Dynasorb for wood-dropping activities, too. 1/2" Orange 150 ft.

PDB Dynasorb

In another example, Jamie Goddard of Yale Cordage recently demonstrated on video a drop test using a 220-pound weight tethered rst with dynamic (elastic) line and then with static (nonelastic) line. Tensile strength of the dynamic line was 3 tons, while the static line was 10 tons. The dynamic line arrested the weight six times without failure, while the static line snapped on the rst drop (search YouTube for yale+cordage+dynamic+test). Dynasorb is not drastically different from other arborist-grade polyester double braid (PDB) rigging lines, only a smidge more elastic, about 3% within working-load range. The rst to really tell the difference (especially when theres ample line in a system) will be the climber. If managed with a lowering device from below, the impact will be noticeably softer. The groundsman operating the lowering device will feel little difference as well if letting the load run properly, but in the event of yanking it to a stop, the difference can be dramatic. Dynasorbs secret is in the core. Inside is a special blend of high-strength nylon built to come back to shape again and again for unbelievable rigging performance, while the outside feels much the same as other arborist-grade rigging lines. Dynasorb is jacketed in 100% high-tenacity polyester and is Maxijacket-coated for excellent abrasion resistance.

This rope has amazing shock-absorbing capability that can undoubtedly mean the difference between success and disaster in a critical rigging situation. Well soon keep one in each of our rigging kits. - Greg Good inventor of the GRCS (Good Rigging Control System) and owner/operator of Good Tree Company LLC, Wisconsin

...Quite simply the best thing to happen to non-invasive tree climbing in the history of the biz. Wont leave home without it!

Throw Weight Launching System


The BIG SHOT head assembly ts into the female ferrule of Jamesons utility-grade berglass extension poles to produce the leading and most effective means of launching a throw weight accurately into tree canopies and over other high targets. Unlike any other method (compound bow, gas or powder-charged guns) the BIG SHOT accepts a wide range of projectiles, requires no special license to transport and most importantly provides the user with fully variable thrust force to limit over-shooting of low to mid-range targets. The BIG SHOT also solves one of the most signicant difculties of hand tossing throw weights; vertical targets with narrow approaches. With minimal practice youll be able to hit high targets as small as a pie pan through a small frame of branches and twigs. This is truly a tree workers best friend! THE NEW BIG SHOT design is more accurate and 25% lighter than before! Thanks to computer-aided design (CAD) we were able to reduce excess bulk and weight from the head assembly while keeping the same wide-fork dimension that has made this tool such a popular throwline accessory. While we were at it, we redesigned the launch pad to cut in-air projectile rotation by 50%, greatly improving accuracy (also available as a sling replacement for older models). So, if youre looking to thread the needle through the thickest of canopies or launch throw weights up to 150 vertical feet, reach for the tool that arborists around the world call for by name.

AMT Throwline bags (A-D)


ArborMaster Training throwline bags are the heart of a solid rope access system. Made of heavy-gauge pack cloth nylon with drawstring closures, both models have folded and stitched handles with exterior pockets for storing essentials. On the inside, each has enough room to stack upward of four 200 throwlines, along with four oating rings lining the walls for managing lines end. The deluxe model has a rigid rim stitched into the top, interior pockets for throw weight storage, and Velcro tabs on exterior pockets to keep valuables (like your new Line Tamer) secure during travel, even in the swiftest of corner turns.

Line Bags (E-G)


Choose from our new, see-through mesh nylon or solid canvas nylon-constructed line bags to meet your storage needs. Mesh is translucent, for instant identication of contents and air circulation to allow wet line to dry quickly. The nylon canvas version does a good job of keeping things dry in the rst place. Both 9" bags work great with the Line Tamer (right), hold up to 400' of throwline, and have drawstring closures to keep contents in place. Plastic discs available to separate stacked lines.

Line Tamer
An idea brought to us by tree-buddy Eddie Bingle, the battery-operated, Line Tamer shuttles 200 feet of throwline from one location to another in just 15 seconds! Thats right, from scattered across the ground to inside something as small as a soda bottle in less time than it normally takes to decide who gets the task. This specially modied for SherrillTree, line-stripping device by Berkley works on cordage up to 2.2 mm, including SherrillTrees Rhino Line and Zing-it. Two C batteries, bag and line not included. 29404 - $23

Fox Tail
Even with a BIG SHOT, tree climbers are only as good as their throwline skills, both on the ground and off. This unique practice tool is the best skills-honing device Ive seen. A few hours of play time will shave days off your throwline learning curve. 30900 - $12

The jet black sides with yellow trimming are not only attractive after extensive outdoor use but make the cube stand out just enough on the job site without attracting unnecessary attention from strangers. Storage features include one large exterior and two small interior pockets for holding throw weights plus an interior Velcro strap and D-ring for quick line-end recovery.

Throwline Storage
Spooling line onto a coiling device or stick is common among tree workers. Rolling and unrolling line in this manner can be rather time consuming. If you hank line on to your arm, you must unhank it the exact same way prior to use or deal with a tangled mess.The proper method of storing most line is to ake it into or onto something clean. Piling line from bottom to top is simple to do, and tangle-free at ring time. If you dont have a bucket, bag or line tarp, simply use a paper bag but always keep the working end separate from the pile or all will be lost!

Wingman Drawstring Saddlebag


This Wingman not only covers your back with loops, hoops and pockets for storage, but is trained to lay down as smooth a line as youre gonna see. Thats right, in the time it takes to say hey sweet lips, is that your natural color? Wingman can be front and center (easily repositioned from back to front) with every tool necessary to land the perfect, uuh, well, tree branch area where it meets the trunk. And if that werent enough, this worthy assistant is lined with pockets to carry your cell phone, pens, lighter, and most other essentials required to cruise a righteous canopy. The wall-lined pockets also do well at keeping gear from entangling a good line. So whats our new credo? Never, ever, ever leave your Wingman behind. 32380 - $43

Throwing a Line
Tie the throwline to your weights ring using a slipped clove hitch, then, drop the weight to the ground and tie a slipknot about thigh high and use this bump in the line as your pinch point for precision release. Once your target limb is isolated (see opposite page for a line isolation trick), install the climbing line (with friction saver). Rip Tompkins suggests a pile hitch, but a host of other knots serve this purpose just as well.

THROWLINES
Choose from the best throwline materials in the industry to get your every tree job done on schedule! SherrillTree recommends choosing the lightest throw weight possible for returning the chosen line to the ground, a challenge that is largely based on tree bark roughness and crown density. Although a light throw weight is easier to throw high, it must be heavy enough to pull its attached line to the ground or all is for nothing. In most cases we recommend a 12-14 ounce weight for 80% of mid-range hand throws and under 10 ounce for really high stuff. Also, hand throws often arch more signicantly than a BIG SHOT launch so hand throws will require more weight to compensate for multi-branch contact friction.

SherrillTree Saddle Sizing Chart Guide to the perfect t


Manufacturers provide general waist t ranges for their saddles, but dont typically provide measurements for the hip rings or leg straps. For improved customer convenience, weve painstakingly measured and logged the actual ring and leg measurements of each product we sell. Take measurements fully clothed and at the specied locations, then select your next saddle based on the actual t ranges that youll nd listed near each cataloged saddle.

Sit Harnesses
Sit harnesses (saddles) certied to Europes stringent EN 813 and EN 358 standards are designed for work positioning and not fall arrest. The Sequoia, TreeMotion and Buttery saddles are tested as follows:

STATIC TEST: approved attachment points must withstand a 15 kN (3,372 lbf) static load for 3 minutes. Actual strength is generally much higher than that required by the standard. DYNAMIC TEST: attachment points designed to be used in pairs must withstand a 100kg 1-meter drop test; those designed to be used individually must withstand a 2-meter drop. Note: for these tests, each attachment point is tested individually, even those designed for use in pairs (e.g. lateral positioning rings).

treeMOTION

8-time ITCC winner For prudent climbers, selecting the next saddle is all about maximizing work efciency and minimizing physical stress. The dollars spent today are purely an investment in the hours, days, and weeks to come. The difference between a more costly yet clever, well-built modern design and an old-school, bottom-dollar option has little weight in the decision! treeMotion was designed over a ve-year period by three of the most innovative and physical climbers I know, and, unlike the developers of the latest pro-athlete running shoe, these guys actually put some time into design before physically cutting, sewing, and climbing each sample up to production. The brainchild of seven-time world champion Beddes Strasser of Germany, treeMotion is simple yet highly sophisticated, tough yet exible, andabove alldesigned to support a wide range of tree climbing techniques and moves. What treeMotion isnt is limited. Named after the unique movement performed by treeworkers, treeMotion delivers comfort through four primary and new-to-market features: an ergonomically cut back and leg design; user-adjustable suspension bridge and rings; self-adjusting multistrap hip and lumbar support; and, lastly, usercustomizable utility loops on back and leg pads. Like being gifted the garage of your dreams, each new owner is entitled to design his own tool locations to preference. Where other saddles have ve to ten xed tool locations, treeMotion has more than 100 possibilities to choose from, including several on the leg pads! The same holds true for the suspension bridge, where length and accessory options abound. The treeMotion team devised an ingenious support ring that allows ne adjustment of the pulley-friendly bridge cordage that glides ever so smoothly! In mere minutes, you can switch from an installed swivel to a rope-style pulley to, heck, nothing at all. And when this supporting bridge wears out, simply thread a knotted replacement and voil, no splicing, no stitching, no hassle treeMotion. Features include ergonomically cut back and leg pads that conform to human shape (not just a die-cut oval shape); removable and washable padding; six Caritool positions, two heavy-duty (red) and vertically adjustable cord loops; rst-aid kit position with two cinch straps in lumbar area; committed and load-bearing chain-saw ring in back. Fits waist sizes 30-38. Measurements (chart on pg. 30)

Cougar Rope Bridge Saddle by Weaver


Over the past decade, a certain characteristic of saddle design has become the number-one sought-after feature for comfort in tree climbingthe oating bridge. The oating bridge is essentially a suspension strap that spans the wearers lap where the support line is connected, allowing for free movement of the torso like no other design. Such mobility allows a tree climber to reach up and down and in, and out much more freely during a routine that demands exibility. With design assistance from North Carolina arborist Eddie Simril, Weaver puts their Cougar on path with a handful of the industrys most respected predators, including treeMotion, Dragony & Buttery, Glide, Sequoia, Traverse, Versatile, and the new Ergovation. Weavers genes are obvious in the Cougarfrom the signature, heavy-duty stitching to the grommet-stamped tongue buckle. The Cougar makes for a good-quality, entry-level oating bridge saddle.

Adjustable leg and bridge straps provide comfortable t for a wide variety of body shapes Removable and replaceable leg pads and bridge Leg straps feature secure, quick-connect buckles for ease of use Belay loop on back for training and rescue (not for fall arrest) Spaces in belt for attaching accessory carabiners Built-in attachment rings for suspenders (suspenders sold separately) help distribute tool weight to reduce fatigue Three additional Ds on the bottom of the waist back for attachment of ditty bag or rst-aid kit Saddle features a sewn-on leather identication tag with an insert for convenient storage of the plastic use, wear, warning, and maintenance tag Weight: approximately 6.5 pounds

A. Clove hitch quick hitch used to send tools aloft or to anchor rigging lines to non-rotating objects (add a half hitch or two if anchor point might rotate). B. SLIP KNOT used commonly as a jam knot for holding line in position or as a pinch bump for throwline. C. DOUBLE Fishermans knot (Grapevine Knot) used to connect line ends such as to create a prusik loop for the secured footlock technique. Difcult to nearly impossible to untie following a heavy load. D. SCAFFOLD KNOT for securing line to a rigid object like a safety snap or carabiner. Hitch cinches down rmly with load and can be difcult to untie after applying heavy loads.

E. Running Bowline in rigging this is often used to connect the target wood to the terminal end of line. The cinching power of the hitch holds wood tight but is easy to tie and untie. F. Blakes hitch this is a friction hitch used to ascend and descend by climbers utilizing the doubled rope technique (DdRT). G. Schwabisch prusik friction hitch tied with a line approximately 1/8 smaller in diameter than the climbers support line that is easy to tie and untie, has a rm grip when loaded and releases easily when not loaded. H. Sheet Bend for quickly attaching 2 lines (of different or similar diameter) to shuttle their position. Not very stable and not intended for carrying significant weight loads.

New design utilizes clevises, allowing for a simple change of the bridge. Locktite required.

Comfortable, contoured belt back has 3 roomy storage loops and an accessory ring on each side. The Buttery and Dragony tree climbing saddles were developed by European tree experts Frdric Mathias and Franois Dussenne of Canopee Design. Quite popular in overseas markets, these lightweight, extremely versatile saddles have built a reputation for comfort and functionality in the working community. Owners of these saddles have the ability to change out the support bridge by way of stainlesssteel clevis anchor points. With this new feature, many climbers are able to plug in hardware options such as the Rock Exotica swivel (page 62) or captive-eye carabiner to better reect their personal climbing styles. Weighing in at less than 4 pounds, each saddle sports wide padding in the back for very comfortable lumbar support. The Buttery has an adjustable legstrap suspension system that supports each thigh independently and is contoured to alleviate pinching in the wearers crotch. The Dragony utilizes a Bosun seat design that many climbers feel is more comfortable when a lot of sitting is on the schedule. This lower portion (seat) is interchangeable between saddles and, because the Buttery is the more popular choice by climbers, we offer the Dragonys batten seat separately for Buttery owners who want the option of converting periodically. The switch takes only minutes. If youre in the market for a proven performer that makes work a pleasure, consider the Buttery or Dragony an excellent choice!

Sequoia SRT Differences

Sequoia Swing

Ventilated padding keeps you cool.

The SRT model is absent a waist buckle but has a back and abdominal loop for connecting Croll and suspenders.

Ring support adjustment to t your build and climbing style. 7 tool holding carabiner storage positions.

Ingenious ring design allows owner to congure or replace support bridge as desired. Wide and comfortable back pad provides excellent support during long work days. Experience the same great quality, comfort, and sportability of the Petzl Sequoia tree climbing harness but now with the added comfort of a bosunstyle seating platform. And not just any bosun seat but a unique, lightweight, and adjustable-width swing with independent leg loops for greater comfort and freedom of movement than anything before it. Many climbers prefer the bosun seat because of its high level of comfort. The design acts like a swing to evenly support the users derriere during long routines of sittinga process not alien to tree workers using a chain saw, working with a crane, or perhaps even cabling and bracing to name a few. Selling points: Adjustable seat width facilitates improved movement in the harness Easy to don with fast-adjust buckles on the waistbelt and leg loops Bridge is attached to the waistbelt and to the leg loops by two gated rings in order to - adjust weight distribution between waistbelt and leg loops - adjust length of bridge to belt attachment or install dual bridges - allow attachment of rings or swivel directly to bridge Two lateral attachment points transfer weight evenly around the waistbelt for comfort when leaning back Five equipment loops with protective sleeves Two rings for handsaw or light tool attachment Slots for Caritool tool holders

Secure yet easy to open buckles make the Sequoia quick to put on and remove.

Leave it to Petzl to go beyond the call of duty with this latest tree climbing innovation, appropriately named after the worlds largest living phenomenon. The Sequoia is an amazingly comfortable and well-ventilated design that comes in two variations whose only differences can be boiled down to a waist adjuster and two small attachment points (front and back on the SRT model) for attaching Petzls Secur suspenders and the Croll chest ascender (required in some rope-walking systems). If you only climb using doubled rope, in the traditional tree climbing fashion, then you may nd the additional expense and step-through waist belt nonessential. Everything about the new Sequoia is designed and constructed for maximum comfort and durability, but at minimal weight (1.37 kg, or 3 lb). For example, the hip D-rings are large for the many climbers who still appreciate this feature but as light as the smallest steel versions found elsewhere. The wide back and leg pads provide maximum comfort during long hours of ridiculously hard labor, yet are constructed of a new lightweight and breathable fabric that utilizes ingenious stiffeners to provide an impressive balance between support, weight, and product longevity. The back pad is also contoured to alleviate rib constraint, greatly enhancing operator movement. If its versatility youre looking for, then check out bridge rings that can be opened using a simple Torx wrench (included) to replace or exchange the bridge, to install hardware accessories (like a swivel), or to simply better adjust your center of gravity within three available positions. For tool storage, both models have ve well-anchored and generously sized, sewn nylon storage loops on the back pad as well as seven gaps in the belting material for utilizing carabiner-style holders like small or large Caritools. As for chain-saw stowage, I would recommend accessorizing with a straight-back alloy carabinereither hipside or mid-back. The downers? No leg storage positions and no available position for hanging a utility pouch, at least not without attaching screw links to storage loops. All in all though, I think the Sequoia will quickly gain Measurements (chart on pg. 30) a rep as the most comfortable CODE PRICE WAIST RINGS LEG Sequoia saddle out of Europe in its price range. 28-39 24" 20"-26" Size 1 32020 Size 2 32021 CODE 32022 32023

Pinnacle - Classic
Traditional style tree climber harness with comfortable, Bosun seat design.

Versatile - Classic
Multiple attachment points accommodate virtually any climbing style.

The Pinnacle saddle reflects a more traditional-style tree climbers harness, with attributes that add comfort to an often awkward and strenuous occupation. Although the Pinnacle has leg straps to keep the wearer from falling through the saddle, and to keep the seat properly located, they are nearly undetectable when working, due to soft padding and chafe resistant material. D-rings are small, to minimize irritating hang-ups while navigating thick brush, and to help greatly reduce weight. The true secret to comfort with the Pinnacle is the stitched-in swing seat that better distributes your weight. This Bosun seat-style design, rst incorporated by European tree climbers, provides unmatched comfort without sacrificing mobility. The swing-like board better distributes your weight while sitting, and eliminates thigh pinch and knee knock, a problem often associated with a traditional seat strap saddle. The Pinnacle seat strap buckles adjust to provide the perfect center of balance. Add to this the 9" wide back support, loaded with storage positions, heavy duty material and stitching, not to mention the awesome time saving features for the splittail climbing system, and youve got the modern arborists dream work harness. Call today for one of the most comfortable saddles youll ever use! Weighs 5 lbs.

Waist belt features sewn in gaps for accessory carabiners.

The Versatile is a unique harness that incorporates a rolling suspension system with multiple attachment points for a high variation of climbing versatility. Seven reinforced loops across the front suspension strap (including a single, mid clip-in point) allow utilization of multi-directional attachment as well as the traditional single attachment method. The leather-backed suspension strap is designed for rolling attachment as well (see HDP roller, part #15620, page 63), a method that eases back strain during strenuous work activities. On the back pad, the Versatile has a variety of loops and rings for most any arrangement of preferred tool storage, including snaps for saw attachment and several rings for carabiners and tools. The padded and reinforced seat has adjustments on either side for zeroing-in your center of gravity. Comfortable, padded leg straps help position the seat and eliminate a potential for falling through. The leg straps are not designed to support your body weight but to keep the seat in place. Weighs 7 lbs 2 oz.

The Pinnacle is modeled after the traditional-style saddle but has the added advantage of being able to support the worker with D-rings apart. Measurements (chart on pg. 30)

Master - Classic Upgrade the Classic version of any of these 3 saddles to a DELUXE Series Classic
FEATURES 6 soft and 1 steel suspension points Quick link leg buckles Waist and leg adjustment points Training/rescue belay loop in back 2:1 hip-adjustment system Various hardware attachment points Carabiner pass through positions Well padded, supporting design LIGHTWEIGHT! (4.5 pounds) This simple yet masterful design has been one of our top-selling saddles for several years running! The leg strap system was designed to support from underneath the legs instead of through the crotch. Climbers will appreciate the range of attachment points (7) for multidirectional support when working in precarious positions (like double-crotching) or with use of a split tail system. These primary attachment points not only provide a lower center of gravity, but hold carabiners facing forward or sideways, depending on wearer preference. Unlike the traditional-style treemans saddle, that puts pressure on the hips and restricts mobility, the Master offers greater exibility by sharing support equally between the individual legs and waist to greatly improve freedom of movement. The Master has wide, adjustable leg straps, for comfort and t to a range of wearer shapes and sizes. The hip d-rings are detached from the waist belt (instead of under them) to eleviate irritation to the waist during long work days. The back pad has lots of storage space for tools, and a single belay loop (for training or attachment of suspenders or tools). The Master is handmade of super durable 1 3/4 inch nylon webbing, quality padding and high strength forged steel hardware.

4 solid reasons to use a friction saving device:


Saves tree from the cambium scalding friction abrasion. (shown to the right) Reduces the amount of surface wear and grit forced into critical lines. Reduces energy required to ascend rope when body thrusting. Greatly enhances friction hitch response during movement and especially descent.

Rope and Cambium Protector


The rope and cambium protector is a product from medieval times for sure, but effective just the same. Still a leading means of chafe protection in a variety of rope uses, leather is tough, lightweight and, in this practice, quick to employ. The thread-andhaul technique (displayed right) is simple and minimizes the many headaches associated with ground placement of other friction saving devices. The Rope and Cambium Protector is not only easy to install but nearly indestructible come removal time, brought down with an easy yank on the ropes end. Most users keep the rope and cambium protector installed and ready for use every time the rope is utilized. After heavy use it may be helpful to introduce talcum powder inside the channel to reduce friction. Designed for lines under 14 mm (5/8). 30535 - $21

Patented Buckingham Ring and Ring Friction Savers


If preservation work done right and maintaining climbing lines is important to your company, then a Friction Saver should be readily available in your Rope Boss Line Luggage. By utilizing a Friction Saver between your rope and the tree, you nearly eliminate burning friction to your lifeline and certainly reduce the introduction of grit and sand that is present in and on all tree bark. Only Buckingham produces load rated Friction Savers with hardened rings, fat enough to signicantly limit ropes bend radius. Buckinghams anodized aluminum rings are lightweight and dissipate heat better than the steel rings, but dont withstand abrasive friction quite as long. Some climbers are also more secure with the fact that steel rings can put up with abuse, intentional or not, better than aluminum. Buckinghams machine-stitched friction savers have a multilayered, stiff-bodied design that insures quick installations and easy removals. The big ring end is color coded for easy identication during ground removals and installation. By using throwline, a Buckingham Friction Saver can be both installed, and removed from the ground in just minutes. Detailed instructions provided with each Friction Saver. 6,000 lb. load rating.

Adjustable Friction Saver (AFS)


Thanks to encouragement from Atlantabased arborist Mark Adams, SherrillTree is proud to present a popular variation to friction management that most simply refer to by its acronym, AFS. This one-size-ts-all, rope-friendly device can be set from the ground or within the crown. Itll go around branches as small as your wrist up to tree trunks as large as the circumference of the entire device to be used as an anchor position for any type of climbing line. Once the climb is complete, simply tie an overhand knot in the end of your rope and reel in the entire system! Note: Connecting throwline to overhand knot will retrieve the AFS in a controlled manner. Friction management is not just for high-end tree service companies any more, but theyre the ones whove embraced the tool for reasons of safety and production. Climbers with Downey Tree Service, for example, werent especially thrilled with the directive to utilize an AFS on every take-down, but once they realized how much safer, easier, and more comfortable the exhausting exercise became, objections subsided! Rope runs smoother, stays cleaner, and doesnt abrade when threaded through an adjustable friction saver. Hand-spliced by the best in the business. SherrillTree utilizes high-tenacity polyester cordage and Italian-made aluminum and steel rings to provide maximum strength and safety for thousands of moves to come. Aluminum rings, 6 ft.

The Rope Guide (friction saving device) by ART


To most who use it, the Rope Guide approaches obsession status. From its ability to rmly grasp horizontal to vertical stems 6 inches to 10 feet circumference, to its smoothas-glass rope response, stepping away from the Guide is like, wellriding on at tires. The Rope Guide delivers total sensation to a friction hitch or lockjack, making your ascents and rappels slide like butter. But better yet, Rope Guides now have a brilliant new feature that can only be compared to an air bag for tree climbersa new IMPACT-ACTIVATED SHOCK ABSORBER! Like an air bag, this lifesaving feature remains inactive in noncritical bumps and bounces but may save your spine (or anchor point) in an unexpected fall exceeding 4 kN. Unlike a cars air bag, however, the Rope Guide shock absorber can be reused to a predetermined and easily monitored limit thanks to a proprietary and patented process. This is truly an incredible product for the safety-conscious climber! For lines up to 13 mm (1/2 inch), the Rope Guide can be removed remotely from the ground but requires ascent to install (commonly by footlocking). Rope Guide with 10 ft lanyard 28287 - $329

Works on vertical stems up to 9 feet in circumference.

Install the Rope Guide up to 5 feet away from target crotch and then cinch it short.

MagBloc Friction Eliminators


This ingenious evolution of the ring-style friction saver gives critical lifelines and rigging lines a vastly improved rope running surface without signicant increase in weight or bulk. Designed by Portawrap co-inventor Scott Prophett and machinist Scott Winningham, the MagBloc provides lines with two side-by-side, smooth-rolling sheaves that virtually eliminate friction while greatly enhancing bend radius for guest ropes. Just like conventional friction savers, the MagBloc can be installed or removed quickly from the ground or an adjacent tree using only throwline and weight. Once set, the two-part rope channel magically snaps together using powerful magnets inset within the systems grooved, self-aligning frame for perfect inline action. And for rigging applications, it is now feasible to install rope protection high into a trees crown without climbing by using the only friction saver ever designed specically for this hair-raising task the MagBloc!

SPLIT TAILS
Redirect to new crotch without risk of dropping rope Signicantly reduces knot tying/untying Eliminates friction damage to tail of lines Allows lifeline to instantly convert to safety lanyard Within only the past ten years tree climbers have pretty much abandoned using the tail end of their lifeline for performing friction management. Not only did friction wear to the end of life lines lead to periodic trimming or shortening of this most important rope, but the method of attachment to the climber required excessive knot-tying throughout a days work. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, the old method required complete detachment of lifeline from climber (while attached with safety lanyard of course) in order to redirect to another crotch, exposing climbers to signicant risk of dropping their lifeline. The split tail method solves all of these critical issues. A friction damaged split tail can be disposed of without affecting the host lines length, spliced eyes eliminate bulky terminating knots while carabiner attachment/detachment means the friction hitch neednt ever be untied! WANT LONG-LASTING? We offer three materials for our split-tails: GOOD: Polyester - the same material that climbing ropes are made of, less heat and abrasion resistance than other options but sometimes preferred by old-schoolers. BETTER: Polyester/Technora blend BEST: Technora

WARNING! Always test split-tail compatibility to your climbing line at ground level before incorporating it into your climbing system! Robust climbers may require additional wraps.

Eye-to-Eye Tails
Eye-to-eye tails are used to create what tree climbing instructors call a closed system, resulting in a nished friction hitch with both ends attached to the connector instead of one hanging loose, as with the traditional hitch or single-eye split-tail. The i-2-i tail also allows use of several hitches that are easily learned and extremely smooth performing. By utilizing both ends of this type of split-tail, friction is more evenly distributed, resulting in more consistent friction through a knot that is less binding, yet grabs quite rmly. The system is enhanced signicantly when incorporating a micropulley that fair-leads the hitch for one-handed slack-tending. The only disadvantage Ive heard is from seasoned climbers experienced only in body-thrusting (utilizing a long bridge between saddle and hitch) who now must adjust to reeng hand-over-hand on the incoming line above. Once learned, though, many climbers nd this practice faster and more efcient. A small list of hitches is tested and proven to make line movement through the eye-to-eye hitch considerably more responsive to various climbing styles. Illustrated here are leading choices for safety and security. We strongly recommend you practice tying your chosen hitch until you can do it in the dark ... tying, that is. Ltr.

Single-Eye Tails
The single-eye split-tail is most similar to the traditional method of snap-tying a rope but with two twists: The system can be redirected around branches without untying the hitch throughout a climb, and friction wear is isolated to the disposable tail. Theres nothing for old-schoolers to get used to. If you are one of those old-school climbers, watch just one demonstration of the single-eye split-tail and youll recognize the value of being able to quickly and safely unclip the climbing lines end (for redirecting to another crotch) while the split-tail hitch remains tied to the host linegreatly reducing the risk of ever dropping your lifeline to the ground. You can go through an entire day without tying a friction hitch twice. The second big plus has to do with line preservation. A split-tail eliminates the need to cut off the end of your favorite climbing line every few weeks due to friction wear. Simply replace the split-tail and life is good! If youre not using a split-tail in your climbing system, consider changing to one of SherrillTrees top picks for increasing production and climbing efciency.

Unicender by Rock Exotica


The Unicender is an all-in-one ascender/descender that works in both single and doubled rope techniques (SRT and DdRT). This unique mechanical split-tail designed replaces the friction element (tied hitch) of a DdRT tree climbing system. Invented in 2005 by arborist Morgan Thompson and now produced by world-renowned machining phenom Rock Thompson of Rock Exotica, the T6 alloy Unicender also functions cleanly on single line for abseiling and is not limited to use by professionals only recreational or beginning climbers will nd it a rewarding investment for occasional to regular use as well. The Unicender is considered inherently less complicated than separate ascender and descender devices because there is no dangerous changeover at the top of the climb, affording seamless transitions from ground to crown and ground again. Heres how the Unicender works on doubled rope: With your climbing line attached to the top of the Unicender and the tether below attached to a saddle, weave the falling part of line as diagrammed on the device. From here its identical to the traditional technique except theres no need to advance or even handle the Unicender until youve reached your destination. It magically advances with near frictionless motion, towed by the (upper) attached line. Descending is performed one of two waysin squeeze-to-go mode or rope slide mode. In squeeze-to-go mode, you descend or limb walk by pinching the activation bars together. Squeeze hardgo fast. Squeeze softgo slow. Release the device and it locks on line. Rope slide mode is most commonly used to descend single line (SRT) and is performed by lapping a bite of exiting line around the activation bars and tailing the device, much like tending a figure 8. Very simple, very smooth. Under heavy weekly use by practicing arborists and with relatively grit-free lines (utilizing a friction saver pg. 44), the Unicender has been found to last 18 months or more before requiring replacement of the four clamping blocks or retirement all together. These parts naturally erode from rope abrasion. To nd out more, go to www.sherrilltree.com and search Unicender. Unicender with Tether and Prusik 33488 - $345

HOW ART PRODUCTS WORK


The working mechanism of the ART LockJack and SpiderJack is the compact aluminum cylinder that controls running line. When load is applied, the cylinder jacks to one side, changing the path of threaded rope, pinching it against a smooth, concave clutch mechanismacting much like the brakes on a car. This pinching action is very gentle on running rope, causing virtually no abrasion to the rope itself. To release the brake (to descend), simply pull gently on a STOP lever that returns the cylinder to an inline position, relieving the pinching action. When limb walking, the weight of rope below the device

Lockjack Sport by ART


Once off the ground, the LockJack Sport requires only a few pounds of rope beneath to self-tend, leaving your hands free to advance line above. Once in the crown, this feature allows the climber to walk toward the anchor point with near hands-free effort! The other primary difference between the Sport and the Twin is lack of tether. Climbers who footlock climb (ascend on two parts of rope) to destination before hooking up their split-tail have no need for a long bridge making Sport their choice! The optional swivel compensates for rope-twisting activity and provides optimal handle position at all times. Resides closer to the harness performing similar to an eye to eye split tail. Shipped with clutches for both 11 and 12.5mm ropes.

Spiderjack II by ART
Although similar in concept to the Sport, the SpiderJack II is a more sensitive performer, rewarding skilled climbers with an amazing sense of line control. Operating on a wider range of rope diameters than the Sport, the Spider requires threading rope into position for use, a non-issue if you use only one end of line. You will instantly recognize smoother rope action while ascending and descending. Merely pulling on line above causes the Spider to gobble rope with a voracious appetite. This same frictionless hunger for loose rope makes branch walking and canopy exploration a gratifying reward for getting out of bed. And when it comes to descendinglook out, here comes the Spider...man! For 11-mm through 13-mm lines. Resides close to the harness similar to an eye to eye split tail. Fits ropes 11-13mm. Carabiner included. Spiderjack II Replacement Clutch 31509 - $325 32257 - $35

FLIPLINE LANYARDS
A ipline is generally dened as a lanyard with a single, lengthadjusting leg that can be cast around tree parts for various workpositioning and ascending tasks. The adjusting mechanism for a ipline might be as simple as a rope grab or as advanced as one of our three release-under-tension mechanical adjusters. An advantage of the ipline is that, no matter what mechanical adjuster is used, it can be adjusted shorter or longer with just one hand. But more important, this adjustment element resides comfortably close at the operators hip. SherrillTree offers two types of ipline: rope or rope with a wire core (added protection during chainsaw use).

Pages 49-50

Adjustable from 1 foot to full length of lanyard One-hand, hip-side adjustment Adjuster can be dismantled and cleansed of sap Rope-grab adjusters accept cut-resistant lanyards Three adjusters allow release while under tension

All Flipline Lanyards have these designations:

2-in-1 SAFETY LANYARDS


The 2-in-1 lanyard allows a climber to utilize both ends of one lanyard to hopscotch branches while moving within a trees crown. Most climbers, when challenged with ascending a conifer, for example, and unable to jettison a throw weight for line placement; attack the climb pretty much like a ladder. In this situation, a 2-in-1 lanyard is manipulated hopscotch style to keep the climber safely tied to the tree while pruning or dismantling his or her way to the top. This product is offered in either rope or rope-covered wire core (for added cut protection). Wire-core and 3-strand ropes are stiffer and are sometimes preferred for gaff climbing a standing spar, whereas braided-rope lanyards fold and pack easier.

Page 52

Adjustable from 1 foot to full length of lanyard from either end Prusik can be disposed of when frayed or sap-caked, but lanyard portion can be retained Cut-resistant lanyards available

BUCKSTRAPS

Page 53

This relatively outdated lanyard style utilizes a friction-creating Prusik folded midline to provide the user with adjustment and full security at minimal cost. Designed originally for linesmen scaling telephone poles (which, of course, have minimal taper), the buckstrap required very little adjustment. Although used frequently by tree care workers, the buckstrap provides limited range on dramatically tapering trees. A secondary limitation of this lanyard is that the Prusik hitch (adjusting mechanism) will sometimes be located in a difcult-to-reach location on the opposite side of the tree because of the way the system is adjusted. If you like or are used to this type of lanyard, consider a Prusik-adjusting lanyard that keeps the Prusik on your hip!

The Positioner lanyard adjuster by ART provides minute and feathered line release at the nudge of your wrist. Designed and manufactured in Germany, this lightweight and compact rope cam device is made with exhaustive attention to detail. Milled from high-grade aluminum and utilizing stainless steel pins and screws, the Positioner has the capacity to serve each climber with years of reliable safety even in our abrasive environment. The Positioner cinches into rope using a smooth-faced and nonaggressive clutch that doesnt damage rope. This method also allows the user to release line while under tension making it extra handy for tasks requiring reaching or leaning. Climbers often seek the Positioner for its small size, ultra light weight and rope range accommodation, while safety directors often appreciate that line can only be removed intentionally and with use of tools.

Arborists shall use a second point of attachment (for example, lanyard or double crotched climbing line) when operating a chainsaw in a tree, unless the employer demonstrates that a greater hazard is posed by using a second point of attachment while operating a chainsaw in that particular situation. Safety lanyards for tree climbing are identied by ANSI as positioning lanyards and are not designed for fall arrest (dynamic arrest) but rather to keep a climber tautly tethered to a sound anchor point in work-positioning situations to prevent a potential fall. Fall arrest requires a full-body harness with dorsal attachment of an energyabsorbing lanyard component.

Klimair 2-way Ascender


This mega-cool tool is the rst of its kind, two-way rope grab for use on rope-style lanyards. Attached to lines 11 to 13 mm diameter, the KLIMAIR allows hopscotching of your safety attachment point without needing to be detached from the tree (just like the 2-in-1 safety lanyard using a Prusik). KLIMAIRs unique camming action allows ne adjustment of the attached lanyard in either direction, while an integrated swiveling eye minimizes the possibility of binding under load. Although a lanyard is not adjustable under load, the convenience of one mechanism with dual purpose goes a long way in making up the difference. 30659 - $92

Hip Prusiks
With use of the 2-in-1 safety lanyard on the rise, weve had a lot of requests for various hip Prusik congurations. All SherrillTree hip Prusiks work well on lines 7/16 to 3/4 inch diameter but require testing on the ground before putting into high-angle service. This instant and secure rope-ratcheting device has a variety of uses and produces less wear on host lines than mechanical grabbing devices.

Forming a Prusik
Create a 4 or 6 coil prusik with good quality cordage (2-5 mm smaller in diameter than the host rope is recommended) to create a bi-directional locking tether that can then be tied or clipped into with a variety of hardware options. Use for climbing, rigging, tree cabling, and many other exercises including many outside of tree care.

5-Coil Prusik
Adding a fth wrap to your prusik is an accepted and common use when the prusik is only being tensioned in one direction. In other words, this method is only viable for ascending or rigging tasks that produce or require pull in a single direction and NOT viable for bidirectional tasks like with a 2-in-1 or doubleended safety lanyard. The concept is simple; this prusik (or Schwabisch) produces the gripping results of a 6-coil prusik (at least in one direction) but without the bulk of 6 coils. This method also reduces friction produced when tending the hitch with a prusik minding pulley.

SherrillTrees TREE FROG Climbing System


Single rope techniques (SRT) utilizing a rope walking system conserve a lot of energy on climbs exceeding about 60 feet by utilizing the legs for 90% of the effort. Once aloft, tree climbers usually safety-in to a nearby crotch and switch over to a traditional doubled rope technique (DdRT) in order to move freely in all directions. Thin lines (up to about 12 mm) are best for SRT because ascenders perform better on lines up to this range. The only problem with most SRT ascent systems for tree climbing is that theyre equipment intensive, requiring bulky storage. The Tree Frog system is not only simple to attach, adjust, and operate but its also as compact to store as anything currently availableand thats important. The Pantin (foot ascender) and Croll (suspender-mounted ascender) can be worn throughout the climb without discomfort or interference, leaving only the handled ascender with foot strap to be stored. You can quickly engage or disengage the Tree Frog over and over for short ascents without struggle, which is sometimes helpful in tall trees where youre able to leave the ascent line xed and work around on your doubled line. The Tree Frog keeps your body in a comfortable, upright position, andbest of allleaves all the work to your legs. So, if youre in need of conserving energy for the workday ahead, hop along, little froggy! Includes Croll ascender, Secur suspenders, left-hand Expedition ascender with cows tail lanyard, foot strap and Pantin foot ascender. Three carabiners, harness and PPE required (but not included). Total system weight 33.6 oz. 30749 - $293

Handled Ascenders
Depending on the distance one must travel and the age, condition, and weight of the individual, handled ascenders can mean the difference in reaching a destination with energy to spare or not. Ascenders lock in one direction and can be pushed, nearly friction free, in the other. Sherrills handled ascenders attach midline on ropes measuring 8 to 13 mm (5/16-1/2 in. dia) and have a spring-loaded safety latch that must be manually tripped to insert or remove rope. Each is left- and right-hand oriented with the latch located thumbside for convenience and safety. Holes provide clip-in positions, depending on the application. All are made of lightweight aluminum, with formed handholds for comfort. Handled ascenders have small teeth on the cam for traction in the presence of ice and mud and will cause accelerated wear to ropes with heavy use. The most signicant difference between Petzl and CMI ascenders is that Petzls have slightly curved teeth (more effective in ice and mud), while CMI uses straight, conical-shaped teeth (known CAUTION: Toothed ascenders not for fall arrest to be less damaging to rope). The second most signicant CAUTION: Most ascender issues often relate difference is that Petzl ascender frames are of a stamped to debris interference alloy material, whereas the CMI models are milled from solid bar stock and tested stronger.

The Texas Climbing System


This SRT system is the most basic of all, with each part stitched together into one compact kit. From a sitting position (on the upper ascenders tether) the climber brings both heels under the buttocks and stands, lifting the upper ascender as they go, then its basically a sit, stand, inchworm motion until reaching destination. Although the technique is effective, its slower than other systems because here, two legs act together as one. The good things about the system are: its easy to learn; it is very compact (portable); and requires the least amount of time to engage and disengage from line. System weight, 32 oz. 15172 - $199

Adjustable Foot Strap


The trouble with most foot straps is that length adjustment is cumbersome and the foot loops fall off your feet at the worst possible time. Sherrills foot strap quickly adjusts to your step distance and cinches down around the wearers boot for secure, trouble free ascent. Not designed for primary support. (Carabiner not included) 28750 - $39

Rock Exotica Chest Box and PMI Harness


No other chest box and harness combo comes close to the comfort and functionality of this system. Simply slip the harness over your head and cinch it snug to enjoy smooth, upper-body support during long vertical ascents. The top-grade alloy chest box provides easy midline attachment with no loose parts to fall off or get lost. The extrawide back harness provides superb comfort. Choose the single-roller chest box for traditional rope-walker systems that use foot and knee ascender locomotion, or the doubleroller chest box for that and all others. Fits lines up to 14 mm.

Pantin
The Pantin is a rope ascender that straps to the ankle, enabling a user to virtually grab rope with the foot. Employ a Pantin with the common doubled rope technique (DdRT) to experience the most efcient way to draw line out from behind the friction hitch. Once into the canopy, many climbers simply leave on the Pantin in place, reemploying it as necessary. Compact and lightweight, the Pantin works on 7/16 to 1/2 inch lines. 32390L - $74.95 32390R - $74.95 The loop system allows positioning of friction hitch near or far.

Ropeman Ascender
Used in conjunction with a carabiner, the Ropeman micro-sized ascender performs all sorts of neat tricks on 10 to 11 mm line. The Ropeman sideplates swing open for easy midline attachment while the wire (pictured above) is used to disengage the rope-gripping cam when load is relieved. This thumb-sized ascender is a key element in the popular Loop Climbing System which allows near instant adjustment of distance between the waist and friction hitch; far for maximum stride while ascending or close for convenient adjustment while limb walking. Another favorite use is quick and mobile pulley attachment for load hauling or mechanical advantage. 15kN, 65 grams, not ANSI compliant. 15232 - $39

Foot Ascenders
Never one to let a good opportunity pass, CMI has stepped up to bat with their version of a rope-pedaling foot ascender. Although a bit bulkier than the competitive brand, CMI ascenders come left- and right-footed and include a lock-closed mechanism. That means the rope stays in place remains captive unless it is released by hand. It can also be held in an open position for easy loading of rope. Anodized aluminum body, Kevlar straps, lifetime cam guarantee. For ropes 9 to 16 mm (each weighs 320 g). 31913L - $59.95 31913R - $59.95

Petzl Tibloc
This ultra-lightweight ascender with small, downward-pointing teeth uses the attaching carabiner as a pinch-post to lock rmly on ropes 8 to 11 mm diameter. Releases automatically with upper motion, locks with downward force. Works with Petzl AmD and William carabiners. 39 grams. Not ANSI compliant. 31523 - $29.95

Petzl Basic Ascender


Often sought after as the alter-ego of the Croll ascender, the Basic is not only the exact opposite in prole but includes an evil twist - no, not really just a carabiner capture position on top and a 4-mm tether hole on bottom. The Basic is commonly used as a right knee ascender in rope-walking systems. Weight: 136 g CE/UIAA Aluminum body For use on single ropes, 8 to 13 mm

Croll Chest Ascender


Used together with the Ascension (opposite page) for ascending rope. Angled attachment hole and special shape allow it to remain at against the stomach. Rectangular upper hole for attachment of shoulder straps to position the CROLL correctly. The CROLL slides up the rope easily as the user ascends. For use on single rope from 8 to 13 mm. CE certied EN 567. 29492 - $56.95

30442 - $54.95

Petzl ASAP Mobile Fall Arrester


The ASAP fall-arrest device works on vertical or angled safety rope by allowing you to move freely up or down with the ASAP in tow. If a fall or rapid force is experienced, the ASAP reacts (like a seat-belt mechanism) by grabbing the rope to stop uncontrolled descent.

Among seasoned chain saw users its generally accepted that the best way NEW WAY to dissuade tearing of the branch collar during weighty removals was to perform an undercut followed by a finishing cut over and ahead of the (initial) undercut. Today theres a growing consensus that the nishing top cut should reside directly OVER or slightly BEHIND the undercut to avoid a rare but potential hazard in certain woody plants where the branch splits in a manner that retains the new kerfs back wall, possibly snatching the chainsaw from the operators hands. Since old habits are hard to break, we thought it prudent to drop notice sooner, rather than later. Dont forget to remove that stub!

Revised Branch Removal Technique

Rock Exotica Dualcender


The Dualcender was designed for use in the secured footlock technique in doubled rope technique (DdRT). Compared to using a Prusik, the Dualcender requires very little effort to advance between strides. The compact size (compared to handled ascenders) is convenient for storage during work. The Dualcenders toothless design does not pick or otherwise abrade lines. Slips on rope at 4.5 kN (1,000 lbs). 28725 - $94

The Bungee Tether


(for handled ascenders) OLD WAY
The nal link to a great ascender system is here, thanks to the folks at Buckingham. This compact, elastic strap greatly reduces the connector from opping between strides, while attached to the base of handled ascenders. The carabiner end is leather lined, for improved grip (carabiner not included) and longer wear, while the other end has ample room to girth hitch through your ascenders bottom hole. Expands to 36", 5,400 lb. tensile strength. 15231 - $26

Petzl Ascentree
This new double-handled ascender by Petzl was designed specically for secured doubled rope climbing tasks utilizing Petzls popular Pantin foot ascender or traditional footlock techniques. The Ascentree sports ergonomically designed handles for a comfortable yet powerful grip, even while wearing thick gloves. With its freshly redesigned cam the Ascentree, like several other redesigned Petzl ascenders, greatly reduces rope abrasion. For ropes 8-13mm diameter. Wt 390 g 32391 - $199

The Figure 8
The gure (of) 8 is a descending device that can be employed quickly on one or two parts of 10-13mm rope to lower ones self to the ground. The original gure 8 (#3) is often referred to as the deaf 8 because it doesnt have ears like the Rescue 8 (#1). Ears were rst added to this rapelling device in the early 70s to reduce the chance of the user accidentally girth hitching their life line, stranding themselves mid-line. The ears of the Rescue 8 also make it easy to perform a lock off when desired, but adds some degree of weight and bulk. The DMM Cardiac Arrester (#2) has a special heart shape, also designed to reduce the possibility of accidental girth hitching but without the ears. Now on to my personal favorite the Petzl Piranha (#4). I recommend this new multi-faceted descender to people with good mechanical sense and climbing experience because threading it is not customary. With other gure 8s I often nd it necessary to double the rope or use considerable hand friction to rappel at my chosen speed. With the Piranha I can really ne-tune friction by quickly rerouting the line in several different ways.

ID for occassional users


The ID is a particularly efcient and userfriendly descender, amazingly easy to place on the rope. To descend, simply pull on the handle while holding the rope, controlling the running of the rope by varying tension on the free end. As soon as the handle is released, it locks. The ID offers unmatched security in descent, and has an anti-panic function that locks action, if the handle is gripped too hard. The ID body is made of anodized aluminum and stainless steel, with a handle of very strong nylon reinforced with berglass. CE certied and works on rope from 10 to 11.5mm (3/8 - 7/16 inch), and the Large ID works on 11.5 to 13mm (7/16 - 1/2 inch). Petzl ID 25031 - $225 Large Petzl ID 25031B - $225

RIG for professional users


The RIG was designed by Petzl to effectively replace use of descenders like the GRIGRI and STOP. If you have experience with those, youll appreciate the RIGs new and improved features including a more ergonomic, multifunction activation handle with spring return; improved rope braking mechanism; and smoother control componentry as well as the ability to ascend without need to detach from your line. Very similar physically and visually to the ID, the RIG differs in that it is 25% lighter, more compact, and void of any anti-panic functionwhich some professional users nd annoying (meaning this version is for users with considerable experience). While climbing, if the user releases the handle, it springs into a position such that if anything falls on the handle, the mechanism locks until manually disengaged. For ropes 10.5 to 11.5 mm in diameter. 380 g. RIG 33401 - $150 The RIG is Petzls improved answer for pro tree users of the Stop, ID and Grigri
The spring loaded handle returns to the belay position

Grigri
This unique belay device for ropes works much like an automobiles seat belt. When movements are slow, the rope runs freely through the device; when there is a shock load, it locks, jamming the rope with its internal cam device. This device can help eliminate some potential belaying errors, but not all of them. The Grigri is not a substitute for skilled, vigilant belaying. Works on 10mm to 11mm (3/8-7/16") ropes, 9.3 ounces. 15186 - $94.95

Rock Exotica Swivels


For pulley connections, lanyards and decenders
Tree climbing requires a lot of moving around while on rope, which usually means a lot of twisting. If youre like a lot of climbers, the worst time to untwist your line comes when youre in the most precarious positions and, although rarely life threatening, it certainly can be inconvenient. Rock Exotica developed these precision swivels to relieve just such twisting. Youll really appreciate the smooth swivel action of sealed ball bearings inside the forged alloy body, for years to come. The Large swivel is designed to accommodate two-person loads in rescue situations, and can have up to three connectors attached in the ends.

This High Density Polyethylene roller is the cats meow for rolling or sliding-d type tree saddles. Clipped into the harness using a Petzl Ball Lock or Tri-Act HMS shaped carabiner, (not included) a climber will be instantly rewarded with smooth flowing movement, with virtually no wear to the saddles primary support strap. Rollers can also be used two at a time in conjunction with a split tail system, in a manner that allows separation of lines and other efcient techniques. Designed by ArborMaster champion Paul Sisson of Washington, the HDP is 2 inches long and 1.5 inches diameter and attaches quickly, providing full security to tree climbing harnesses. 15620 - $8

Traps encourage lines or hardware to retain proper position. The leather version can accept a wide range of items, while steel and plastic traps are limited to hardware 8mm and smaller.

Carabiners and similar metal tree gear are best cleaned in soapy water while being tumbled to dislodge grit and other debris. Once dry though, applying oil-based lubricant merely invites further clinging debris. Thats why most manufacturers recommend dry powder graphite.

NICE EFFECT!
The Micro Pulley attached by a snap to the knot in this picture, acts to mind the friction hitch. Normally, when climbing a tree with a rope, you must pull once, then advance your friction hitch, over and over until you reach the top. The Micro Pulley holds the knot so that you need only pull rope through it. Another popular use is for a climber to hand haul himself up into the tree without having to tend his knot at all. A ground person simply pulls the falling end of line out as fast as the climber pulls himself up. The pulley blocks the knot from biting the line! The Micro pulley can be found on page 58.

The Good Rigging Control System (GRCS)

NOW WITH LARGER WINCH FOR MORE POWER


Modern rigging techniques demand gear that can do more than just lower wood. The GRCS is a device that provides signicant mechanical advantage for the operator to lift, pull, delete slack, lock-off and lower loads under constant control.

AND FLEXIBILITY!
Included with your system is a separate all aluminum rope brake drum, which can be used in place of the 2-speed geared winch when all you need is falling control of large wood. This quickly switched 4-inch drum is designed to accommodate an ice pack inside to prevent rope glazing during extreme lowering situations. The brake drum also accepts ropes of any diameter. Also, an optional drill chuck is available that plugs into the handle socket to turn your gas or electric drill into a high-speed winch motor. No other lowering/lifting device combines the speed, power, versatility and convenience of the GRCS. With this and your rigging line, the skys the limit.

THE GRCS LOWERING DEVICE HAS GUTS...


The GRCS incorporates one of the most powerful winches in the boating industry to create incredible lifting power. At the heart of the system is the Harken 2-speed self-tailing rope winch. With gear reductions of 22:1 in high gear and 44:1 in low gear, a single person can lift upwards of 2,000 lbs! The winch accepts to " diameter lowering lines with a unique self-tailing feature that holds rope tension automatically so the operator doesnt have to. This eliminates the need for a second person to hold tension while the rst cranks the winch. Try to imagine a single person with the ability to raise large limbs away from rooftops, pull split trees together for cabling, or pull large trees over, quickly and with minimal effort.

BACK BONE...
The GRCS has a unique steel frame that allows mounting on a range of tree shapes and sizes. The tree mount has hinged side plates that fold to the contour of the tree and nine rubber feet that provide solid mounting on a wide range of stem diameters. An optional truck mount adapter plugs into any 2" square trailer hitch receiver tube, opening up a completely different set of rigging possibilities. Simple to use rope guides on the beefy steel frame keep lines from crossing over on the winch drum, allowing the operator to focus on the load in control instead of on the device. With no component weighing more that 37 lbs., setup is quick and easy. GRCS complete 22041 - $2,695

H-2 Hobbs Lowering and Lifting Device


Redesigned for the 25th anniversary of Edwin L. Hobbs original invention, this second-generation Hobbs lowering and lifting device is the denition of super-duty rope control. The new H-2 is rated for use with arborist lowering lines from " to " diameter. Offering solid mounting, smooth and precise rope control, and increased lifting and pulling capacities, the H-2 is designed to perform on the job, on demand every day for years to come. The newly recongured spool is cast from hardened T-6 aluminum. With a " thick wall structure, the H-2 is designed for extreme impact loading, wear resistance, and heat dissipation. Massive and maintenance-free, oil-impregnated bushings support the front and rear of the spool, which rotates on a solid steel 1-1/2" shaft!

FRAME FEATURES
The unique, angled frame may be mounted in three separate congurations to suit the rigging task: 1. Preservation Mounting For maintenance pruning when large limbs are removed and the tree is preserved. A hinged guard prevents spike insertion and a hinged, heavy-duty rubber pad provides additional protection to the trunk. 1,000 lb working-load limit (WLL). 2. Standard Mounting Three side spikes aggressively cut into the tree for increased holding strength. 2,000 lb WLL. 3. Cut-in Mounting A notch is cut into the tree, and the top frame plate is placed beneath it when high-impact loading is anticipated for example, when butt-hitching trunk wood. 3,000 lb WLL.

OTHER FEATURES
A rope captured fair lead permits a wide range of movement without fear of rolling wraps off of the spool. A built-in entry hook guides the lowering line onto the spool. Side hooks let the operator safely tie off the load line when desired.

LIFTING FEATURES
Using the winch bar that is supplied with the H-2 to rotate the spool, the device uses a proven, strong, and mechanically simple ratchet and pawl mechanism to operate in the same manner as a come-a-long to develop lifting and pulling power. With a 16:1 ratio, the H-2 can develop more than 3,000 lb of pulling force and is rated to lift 1,000 lb. The H-2 increases its versatility by being able to remove rope slack, lift limbs, and perform other pulling and lifting tasks.

The H-2 comes complete with a 20' mounting strap, winch bar, and detailed graphic labels explaining proper usage, ratings, warnings, and safe operation. The H-2 weighs 58 lb. H-2 Lowering Device 30644 - $1,859 Replacement Strap 15229 - $72 Hinged ap acts as spike guard for preservation work

Portawrap IV
The Portawrap is a lightweight and compact rope friction device designed for lowering heavy wood in a controlled manner. Designed by arborists Scott Prophett and Norm Hall in the early 90s, the Portawrap has been proven a highly dependable and effective tool in sparing properties the damage inicted by free-falling tree parts. In the past, a ground workers main option for rope-controlling heavy wood was to wrap the lines running end around a nearby tree (shown right), often candy-striping the wrap tree from bark-scorching surface friction. But now, in the time it once took to coil up a lowering line and walk it around the next candy cane-to-be, the modern arborist can have a Portawrap locked and loaded for multiple lowering tasks. Quickly wrapped and unwrapped between loads, the Portawrap turns a once precarious tango among fallen brush and tree parts into a smooth-owing waltz in a small, easily maintained space. And unlike the ever-changing tree trunk surface, the Portawrap delivers consistent and dependable friction, allowing the operator to concentrate strictly on the dynamics of the activity above. And, new for 2010, the Portawrap has been completely retooled for signicantly improved corrosion resistance and tree protection. Not only is our new plated steel model more corrosion resistant (according to independent salt spray testing), but you can now reach for our new rust-PROOF stainlesssteel version thatll stand up to the worst heat, salt and humidity that a coastal company can throw at it. Also included is a Scott Prophett special featurea tree-protecting cap that bumpers the targeted tree from gouging whenever the Portawrap gets slapped with a nasty load.

Mechanical Advantage/ Tree Pulling Kit


Our strongest line-tensioning system is popular among advanced riggers for quickly and effectively creating massive pulling power on rigging lines up to 13 mm. Within minutes of nding a solid and safe anchor, youll nish threading these sturdy Petzl blocks to produce ve times the amount of tension possible without them! Made popular by ArborMaster safety trainers and search-and-rescue professionals, this type of system utilizes two Prusiksone that holds tension between strides (after the blocks come together) while the other is adjusted longer (blocks apart) to pull again. The Petzl Twin and Minder blocks are quickly applied mid-line and without stooping to the ground with a simple procedure you can use time and time again to produce from 2:1 up to 5:1 mechanical advantage, depending on the need. Although theyre not delivered with line as a kit, you can use your own line to create a stand-alone system much like our ddle block system. The limitations to the tree pulling kit (as sold) are that it doesnt work in conjunction with a lowering device (Portawrap) if host rigging line is utilized (as illustrated), the system requires above-average rigging knowledge, and it requires a minimum of 30 excess feet of lines end to make use of. Once learned, this simple mechanical advantage system is hard to forget, and even harder to live without! 30806 - $255

Fiddle Blocks
These high-strength blocks are ideal for pre-tensioning lines or lifting heavy objects. Fiddle blocks are easier to deploy than our tree pulling kit (especially for beginners) because the system is applied on top of a host line instead of involving threaded host line. Fiddle blocks are generally stored fully rigged so that you simply attach the ends to host line (via the included Prusik) and anchor (a tree, vehicle, or even host rope again, using the included carabiner on your sling or other means). The ddle blocks limitations are that its tlimited to 10 feet of working spread with the included (50-foot) rope; a friction device (like Portawrap) is required to hold drawn rigging line for multiple advances; and the standard package is slightly bulkier than the tree-pulling kit. The drawing (below) demonstrates how pulling with 200 pounds of force results in a 5:1 mechanical advantage (1,000 pounds) of lift. Between pulls, a built-in cleat holds position on the line, which can be released with a snap of the wrist. Combine this kit with a Portawrap or other lowering device for the ultimate in compact power! Kit includes two blocks, 50 feet of half-inch line with spliced eye, two steel carabiners, rigging prusik, and instructions. SET81 - $299 Fiddle blocks sold separately in chart below.

ISC Spring Lock Aluminum Blocks


2.4 ton 3/4 line
Spring lock blocks are popular among riggers for their high strength-toweight ratio and quick-twist rope access. Solid aluminum-alloy cheek plates, bushing, and sheave are supported by stainless-steel axles. These blocks were designed by Denny M. Moorehouse of Wales, founder of the popular work, rock, and rescue tool manufacturer DMM. Denny is often referred to as The Wizard of Iron and is well known for his attention to quality and toughness. For those concerned about aluminum not withstanding the punishment of steel, we have no record of a fracture complaint in 6 years of production. Spring lock blocks have broad cheek plates to protect running lines, and large sheaves to minimize bend in rigging lines (providing 4:1 up to 9:1 ratios). Manufacturer supplied ratings based on 5:1 ratio

CMI Stainless Steel Blocks


Colorado Mountain Industries, a leader in the rock and rescue industry, has a thing for stainless steel! We all know that stainless doesnt rust but did you know that, pound for pound, its harder and stronger than standard steel? Stainless steel and quality engineering are blended together to create CMIs palm sized power house 2-ton block (our personal favorite) as well as the beeer 3-ton model (NOTICE more than double the weight) for large wood and up to 3/4 inch lines. Both blocks include a separate alloy bushing supported by a stainless bolt. The bushing bolt has a large knurled head for easy opening, even with gloves. Again, extraordinary quality at an affordable price. Sheave 2 3/4" 2 3/4" Line Max 3/4" 5/8" WLL 3 ton 2 ton Weight 5.38 lbs. 2.25 lbs. Color Natural Natural Code 18436 15162 Price

It is important that you convey to your crew, the dangers of mismatching hardware. One such mistake would be to install a grossly oversized sling or running line into a tailboard block. In the accompanying image we illustrate the effect of an over-sized sling attening to produce outward pressure on a blocks side plates in a manner that can damage one or both elements. Generally our blocks have capacity to support a sling 1/8-inch larger than its designated running line capacity. Work safe, pay attention.

Eye Slings
The eye sling is perhaps the most versatile tether for rigging hardware. A block or other device is secured within the slings eye, and a choking hitch such as a cow hitch or timber hitch is tied using the other end. Although one must know knots to use an eye sling, theres no arguing its efcient simplicity.

A B C

TENEX (A) - This ropes construction is stronger and more exible than others because of its loosely woven, hollow construction. Since theres no core to this rope, abrasion wear can be easily monitored. DOUBLE BRAID (B) - The tightly woven outer jacket of this rope helps protect the load bearing inner core from abrasion. Although long used by arborists for eye slings, we nd the double braids use dwindling, compared to its stronger Tenex cousin. AMSTEEL (C) - Amsteel is Samson Rope Companys brand name for Dyneema (HMPE). Pound for pound equivalent in strength to steel wire, Amsteel cordage is not only lightweight (only one-seventh the weight of wire), its also as soft as silk and less bulky than any other rigging material! With a braid construction thats easily inspected, Amsteel has been widely used for more than four years with excellent results for a variety of industrial applications including tree rigging.

PLEASE CHECK YOUR EQUIPMENT!


Years ago, a good customer called to inform us that his favorite double-braid eye sling had broken during use. His favorite turned out to be a key factor in the slings demise. It had proven its great strength on so many jobs that it had earned unwavering condence. It turned out that the sling had been in active service for over 5 years! The interior was impregnated with grit and repeated shock loading to the same few inches had long since compromised the slings integrity.

The Spider Leg Balancer


The Spider Leg Balancer is a unique style of eye sling that a rigger attaches to a bull rope or lowering line (using a Klemheist or 3-wrap prusik), to create balance to a targeted removal. With a single lowering line, the operator is able to better control the limbs tip and base. Using more than one Spider Leg allows the rigger to balance sprawling limbs, without the need of excessive cutting and pitching. The Spider Leg can be used as an eye sling (for mounting a block) in a pinch but the eye is unusually long and doesnt make for a good standard use eye sling.

DMM Rigging Hubs


DMM has done it again with this innovative rigging plate certain to revolutionize thought and process in both practical rigging and life-rescue applications: a symmetrical rigging hub. Conceived in the think-tank of Treemagineers (designers of the treeMotion saddle), the rigging hub was born of necessity, the mother of invention. Unlike re and rescue-style rigging plates designed for two-dimensional use and regularly utilizing hardware connections, the DMM Rigging Hub is a multidimensional support connection with ared and rounded attachment points designed for direct rope or webbing attachments as well as carabiners. As for shape, a circle, not a square, is the strongest form for supporting multi-angled pulling forces. In function, direct attachment of lines or webbing is reliable, stronger, and less likely to misload than multiple lines attached to multiple carabiners attached to the plate. If your company lays claim to being the technical rigging expert in town, were sure youre going to appreciate the variety of new techniques this amazing new hub presents.

Cycles to Failure (CTF)


CTF is an often-misunderstood phenomenon as it relates to tree tools, yet it should be understood on at least a rudimentary level. Examples of the effects of CTF are everywherefrom aged mattress springs to broken mechanics toolsbut as far as arborists are concerned, special attention should be paid to all items subject to dynamic loading. In our example, we illustrate one type of CTFstress fatigueto lubricate your thinking. Bend a coat hanger once and its not likely to break. But bend it repeatedly and the wire will fatigue, eventually to the point of failure. Those of us in the tree industry understand tensile strength, but what happens when rope or hardware is repeatedly exposed to high percentages of said tensile strength? As with the coat hanger, we should anticipate failure of even (perhaps especially) our most trusted tools when they are exposed to repeated, high-impact shock loading. Also illustrated is a known occurrence in tree carethe failure of a block sling at the point where it is most often hammered, at the throat of the eye splice. Our advice to tree care workers: Seek knowledge about dynamic forces and technical rigging; dont lend out your tools; record the date of rst use; keep a record of high-stress events and tools exposed to extreme forces; and, nally, if in doubt, throw it out!

Tuex Slings
Tuex Roundslings are high abrasion-resistant, incredibly strong slings designed for easy use and storage. The secret to their strength is the low stretch, continuous loop polyester (nonwoven) core that carries 100% of the load. All slings are covered by two layers of Tufhide nylon, for outstanding handling, comfort, and wear resistance. Unlike steel cable, Tuex lightweight slings are not abrasive to the users hands or the surface that they are lifting. In a patented process, the polyester cords inside are made seamless, so there are no knots to rupture. Each sling has a stitched-in Tuftag, designed for lifetime identication of strength, serial number and date of manufacture. If the jacket is ruptured, red core yarns provide a visual signal to the operator to retire that sling. Tuex slings will t through the gate of (most) steel carabiners or rigging clevis, thanks to their unique core construction.

Gecko Carbon Fiber Climbers


Gecko CF Climbers are the worlds rst ultralight climbing gaffs that take full advantage of space-age carbon-ber technology. These light yet strong gaffs are ideal for those who are looking for the ultimate in comfort and productivity. Gecko designers virtually walked away from the antiquated belief that heavy and bulky is best and created climbing gaffs weighing in at less than half of what wearers are accustomed to. And low weight is not all thats amazing, because by departing the one-size-ts-all philosophy, Gecko was able to incorporate the slimmest, calf-conforming upper-pad design ever. The entire stirrup, shank, and upper cuff are of one solid, carbon-ber unit, topped with a wide, comfortable, and strong Velcro strap holding a breathable and machine-washable calf pad. By melding this sleek design with carbon ber, Gecko allows you to climb longer and with less stress than you ever believed possible. Gecko climbers deliver excellent value. Example: A cyclist can conrm that the price for a single carbon-ber bicycle rim exceeds $500and often approaches $1,000! To determine proper fit, measure (with boots on) from arch to just beneath knob of knee joint and get ready to receive one of your best work investments since breathable underwear!

Gecko Ultra Light Climbers


German engineers designed Gecko gaffs to fulll the comfort needs of modern tree and utility climbing personnel without all the weight and mass associated with traditional-style spurs. Weighing in as the lightest aluminum climbing gaffs available today, Gecko climbers provide owners with the perfect balance of gafng effectiveness and product longevity. The primary feature that affects gaff comfort is the relationship between the human form and mechanical brace. Geckos aluminum alloy leg shanks were scientically designed to cup the foot arch, bypass irritating contact with the ankle, and gently brace against the upper shin. There is no super-wide, triplethick, metal-enhanced, double-strapped mattress required to keep Gecko secured to ones leg and no steel adjustment sleeve to add weight. Gecko climbers are sought for their unique simplicity and minimalist features, their adjustable berglass shin cuff with intergrated padding, their sleek form, and, most of all, ideal comfort. Comfortable, lightweight, cool, smart spur design what are you waiting for?

Spikes are moderately to extremely harmful to tree health, and should only be used on removals. Climbing maintenance trees without spikes is far easier than it was just a decade ago. If you havent learned to prune without spikes, your prospects for success in this industry are growing limited. Climbing gaffs are intended for use by professionals and properly trained individuals ONLY. If youre shopping for a safe and easy way to get into a tree to hunt or play, you should consider ascenders (page 54). Either way, youll need a saddle, safetystrap and overhead line with basic instruction to keep from injuring or possibly killing yourself.

Japanese for teeth pointing everywhere (okay, not really), Yamabico has one of those features only a production-oriented arborist can appreciate. Now you can quickly perform the perfect undercut every time to keep a limbs own weight from splitting the branch collar. This feature also makes lining up the two cuts quicker and more accurate. Although some workers will nd it odd at rst (if they embrace it at all), I think many will really like Yamabico, and perhaps the feature will nd its way onto more saws in the future. Its not only novel, but its actually quite functional. Saw w/ 330mm blade & scabbard (.60 lb) 330mm replacement blade 407-33 - $70.95 408-33 - $43.95

Mono-construction is Silkys term for a solid, well balanced handsaw. The Natanokos 330mm blade is ideal for fast cutting larger branches.

#1 SELLING PROFESSIONAL SAW

Curved blades are all about speed and power. This design puts more steel in contact with wood while each stroke creates, then removes, a peak in the cut, like chipping ice off a block. Straight blades are not quite as fast-cutting, but are less damaging in thick growth where curved blades tend to nick adjacent branches. Straight blades also allow skilled arborists to manipulate hinge wood for directional felling techniques.

Zbat 330

Todoku
Silkys high-strength, oval-shaped berglass poles are manufactured in collaboration with Asahi Glass Co. Ltd., the company that pioneered manufacturing of berglass several decades ago and continues to be a global leader in berglass technology. Oval-shaped conguration of berglass poles provides precise control over the direction of the blade and minimizes bending. The base pole has a pole-end shock absorber and a comfortable rubberized over-grip that ensures good hold and control. Todoku comes with three 6-foot poles (one base and two easy-to-replace extensions), blade assembly, and carrying bag. The Todoku saw is equipped with the best-selling HAYAUCHI 15-2/5-inch curved blade that utilizes proprietary Silky 4-RETSUME technologyteeth are set in such a way that there appears to be four rows for tough, high-volume tree pruning and line-clearance work. To allow effective connection and operation of Todoku berglass poles, a unique dual-locking system was designed and incorporated to ensure structural rigidity of the connected poles: (1) spring-loaded locking pins/ buttonsthe primary pole-locking mechanism, and (2) friction clampsthe secondary pole-locking mechanism. Both locking mechanisms are designed to work together and thus allow 100% of the effort at the handle to be effectively transferred to the blade up to 19 feet away. WARNING: The berglass poles supporting the Todoku are not considered hot sticks and therefore are not considered nonconducting. Moisture inside hollow poles can conduct electricity.

Pole Bag with Pruner Head Pocket

Extension Poles
Jameson is Americas leading manufacturer of heavy-duty, utility-grade, berglass poles, produced in both HOLLOW and CORE-FILLED versions. Core-lled poles have higher dielectric properties (are batch tested to 100kV), are noticeably more rigid, but weigh virtualy the same as the hollow (yellow) series. Jamesons new (green) economy series poles are built to compete but not compromise! You get the same Jameson quality but in a lighter construction, similar to some Jameson wannabees. NOTICE! Add an F to the end of the part number to exchange bottom (male) ferrule for a rubber boot to create a base pole.

Our pruner pole bags are made of thick, waterproof canvas nylon, providing the ultimate protection for your berglass or wooden pruner poles (6' and 8' bags available). This protective system keeps poles dry, clean, together, and safe from scratching or being scratched. Each giant, hi-visibility yellow bag has four pole pouches and one large pocket to store the pruner head, extra blades and other related parts. Foldover rain aps have rust-resistant chrome snaps. Once loaded, the entire bag folds lengthwise for convenient travel. 6' Pole Bag (1 Tool Pocket) 8' Pole Bag (1 Tool Pocket) 15327 - $69 15325 - $79

Articulating Stilts
Ever been faced with a virtual forest of ornamental trees, myrtles or hedges to prune? How about Christmas lights or decorations to string (or take down)? With help from a single ground person, its possible to outperform a small army of workers wrestling ladders and tools and STILL DO A BETTER JOB! With just a few hours of practice, a coordinated individual will be amazed at how easy and comfortable these articulating stilts are to walk in. Perhaps you recall the 2002 Winter Olympics where a group of actors performed a dance on these very stilts at a breathtaking pace. If precision pruning and maximum production are important to you, or youre tired of waltzing a ladder 360 degrees around every patient, consider this one of the easiest investments around to recoup. Aluminum alloy, adjustable from 24 to 40 inches, load limit not to exceed 225 pounds. 28753 - $379

Corona PowerGlide Pivot-Head Pruner


This smart and lightweight concept was introduced back in the 80s by a Virginia-based arborist but until now was not in production. Three unique features make this telescopic tool unique from conventional pole pruners: an internal pull-cord, a sliding actuator and pivoting head. How many pruning cuts have you made without the ability to adjust your angle of approach to best suit a clean cut? Well, with a simple tap, the PowerGlide head pivots on a ball to present the perfect (or greatly improved) cutting angle. In addition, the PowerGlide comfort grip slides like a pump shotgun down the pole to enact cutting, presenting a nice ergonomic movement for the user. A positive-locking feature eliminates pole slippage of the telescopic parts during use, which, by the way are covered by Coronas famous lifetime warranty.

Groundskeeper II
The Best Twig and Mulch Rake Around!
After trying this new rake design out at home, I considered tossing it in the trash. The Groundskeeper was complete overkill on leaves and darned near tore a blank spot in my yard. The following week, after reporting back to my buyer what a joke it was, he forwarded an e-mail from the inventor requesting I test it on clean-up of twigs, bark, or stump grinder chips. Fair enough, I said. Several weeks went by before I tried it again, but indeed, this rake moves sticks & twigs, grinder chips, bark & mulch and even gravel like nobodys business. The round and stiff tines of the Groundskeeper work differently than the at, exible tines of other rakes. While at, exible tines are great for gathering leaves without disturbing the ground, the Groundskeeper tines sacrice a little grass to get the job nished and workers in the truck! Even better, I discovered that the Groundskeeper does a killer job of removing leaves from bushes by allowing green stems to pass between tines without harm. This rake must be used to be believed. 21-inch head, 28 steel tines, 55-inch berglass handle, 2 pounds. 32230 - $32

Orchard Ladder (Available with Telescoping Leg)


orchard ladder advantage 3 legs versus 4 legs An orchard ladder is to the arborist what an extension ladder is to the electrician. And the difference in the two is almost as signicant, for the orchard ladder balances on uneven ground beyond anything made possible by two- or fourlegged ladders! The genius behind this stability can be traced back to the invention of the three-legged stool. Since the dawn of furniture, its been known that three legs give superior balance to stools that must cope with uneven surfaces (such as oors). In short, with one leg on a

Weighing a mere 8 ounces, TruPulse ts in the palm of your hand and measures height, distance and closest to farthest variances between objects, giving you a highly exible, extremely usable tool for your eld measurement needs. Its large, crystal-clear optics with an in-scope data display and through-the-lens targeting help eliminate parallax issues, and we incorporated an adjustable eye diopter for comfortable use even when wearing glasses. The integrated tilt sensor provides accurate height measurements, even on steep hills. Best of all, this impact-, water-, and dust-resistant compact unit delivers more than just one measurement at a timeit calculates horizontal, vertical, and slope distance with a single press of the re button. TruPulse can adapt to varying conditions and save you untold time in the eld. The standard serial port allows for easy transfer of your data once its been collected. The only thing not engineered into this unit is a big price tag. 3,280 foot range (6,560 to reective target), 8 ounces, uses two AA batteries, water and dust resistant, 7X magnication, feet/yards/meters/degrees, tripod mountable.

For tree trimming, you can free-stand the ladder under a canopy to access up to 20 vertical feet, and thats before inclusion of a pole pruner or saw! Or you can prop the orchard ladder with its wide stance against trunks with even the most horrendous root surface. Got any stories about trying that with an extension ladder? With small trees and shrubs, you can gently poke the third leg through the foliage or fold it over the canopy, allowing access over the plant in a fashion possible only with this three-legged giant. This year, by customer request, we have a telescoping leg available for ladder use on steeper terrain.

Your Cutting Team


The power from your chainsaw drives the sprocket, and the sprocket drives your cutting chain at high speed around your guide bar.Your sprocket, chain and guide bar are the three components of your saws cutting team. Its the cutting team that does the actual work of cutting, and your sprocket is an essential member of the team. Your drive sprocket, the third member of the cutting team, deserves regular attention and maintenance just like your bar and chain. A misused sprocket will cause patterns of wear that can damage the guide bar and reduce the life of all three components. A damaged sprocket cannot be repaired; it can only be inspected and replaced.

Oregon Screnches Eco-arborist


To work properly, chainsaw chains and bars must be lubricated. Petroleum-based lubricants are non-biodegradable, and when dispersed upon the ground, remain in the environment indenitely. Petroleum bar oils are; proven to create carcinogenic vapors breathable by users; capable of causing discomforting eczema and irritation of the respiratory tract as well as oil acne. Vegetable oils (specically Canola) has been extensively tested and proven a superior lubricant having excellent lubricity, resistance to shear, a high ash point and high viscosity index. In addition they are biodegradable within 21-days, produce no adverse health affects and are easily washed from clothing.

Honda-Powered Portable Winch


Found yourself in a jam? Break out the most portable gas-powered winch around and set your problems free! Simply anchor the Portable Winch to a tree, truck, or other solid anchor and wrap any length of low stretch 3/8 to 1/2 arborist grade line to its capstan drum to realize up to 5,000 pounds of dependable pulling power! The 50-cc (2.5 hp), 4-cycle Honda engine powers a 3-stage 110:1 ratio gearbox that turns its capstan drum to about 40 feet per minute. Off of that an operator receives about 2,500 pounds of pulling force on single line. By adding a single pulley onto the targeted load and doubling the winch line an operator can produce the stated 5,000 pounds of pull at 20 feet per minute. To operate, simply start the engine on the ground and the capstan drum rotates, awaiting your line of choice. Next, anchor the Portable Winch by attaching its hooks to either a tree-wrapped polyester sling, or the optional Hitch Plate thats quickly slipped over any 2 trailer-hitch ball. Then, merely wrap your tow line around the capstan drum and youre ready to roll. Any length line can be used because nothing is accumulated on the capstan drum. When load is applied (by drawing tension on the line), the motorized device rises up and inline with anchor and load until you release tension to the line. Its just that easy. The Portable Winch weighs 34 lbs.

Husqvarna Chainsaw Pants


According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, there were more than 28,500 chain-saw injuries in 1999, with the average injury requiring more than 90 stitches and costing in excess of $12,000 for health care and lost wages. Its likely that the majority of chain-saw injuries are to inexperienced users, but its believed that the most severe happen to professionals those of us feeling quite comfortable with the biggest, most powerful of screaming power saws. Although a great many American saw users do not wear saw protection, I personally know a lot of pro-arborists who do (some having met or eye-witnessed someone injured) and who are long past the mind-hurdle that a $100 or hot legs is too much to pay for employees required to run different saws all week. Husqvarna chainsaw protective summer pants can be worn all day just like regular pants and are machine washable. The articulated knees reduce pull at the waist when bending and stooping, keeping the waist from dragging down excessively. Large, vented front and back pockets, as well as a cargo leg pocket, provide ample storage while the Caribou outer fabric is very durable, water-repellant, cool, and, of utmost importancecomfortable. Six layers of chainsaw protective material cover the front, sides, and calves while the backside is a fully breathable (non-saw-jamming) polyester fabric. Conforms to OSHA, ASTM F1897, ANSI Z133.1, and UL Classied. We suggest buying pants slightly loose and using suspenders. This popular wearing style among woodsmen greatly improves air circulation up through the waist, where heat tends to build. Buttons are inside for suspender use, and loops along the waist are for a belt. 32 Inseam Item # HCP-28-30-32 HCP-32-34-32 HCP-36-38-32 HCP-40-42-32 34 Inseam Item # HCP-28-30-34 HCP-32-34-34 HCP-36-38-34 HCP-40-42-34

Premium Chainsaw Chaps


SherrillTree Premium Chaps are among the best chainsaw protection money can buy. Unlike many competitive chaps (marketed to occasional users) that are covered with light-duty, thin nylon, Sherrills professional-duty chaps are wrapped in the latest Cordura Plus for durability and long-term wear. Sherrills chaps are assembled using heavy-gauge nylon thread and high-quality compression snaps and closures. One note about saw-jamming protection: washing is required. Its not unusual to see an operator wearing heavily soiled, thin, almost leather-looking chaps that have never been near water and detergent. Bar oil, dirt, sweat, and grit can cause matting of the chain-stopping fibers within chaps and reduce their effectiveness. Regular (monthly with regular use) cleaning and drying according to manufacturers recommendations keep the material uffed and prepared to function. If its simply the rough and tumbled look youre after, consider something less to do with personal safety. Chaps are orange. All lengths t up to 48" waists, with easily adjusted belt. Lengths measure from top to bottom: OUTSEAM means outside leg measurement. Regular Chaps Medium (32" OUTSEAM) Large (36" OUTSEAM) X-Large (40" OUTSEAM) Chaps with Lower Leg Wrap-Around Medium (32" OUTSEAM) Large (36" OUTSEAM) X-Large (40" OUTSEAM) 2X-Large (44" OUTSEAM) PCHPL-M - $80 PCHPL-L - $80 PCHPL-XL - $83 PCHPL-XXL - $88 Regular chaps PCHP-M - $69 PCHP-L - $69 PCHP-XL - $75

Petzl Vertex
Petzls raised the bar once again with this impressive redesign of the popular Ecrin series. The Vertex is available in two models with highly adjustable suspension systems, including the ability to t the helmet high or low on the head (1) as well as position the chinstrap forward or back and wider around the ears. The suspension has also been modied to allow the back section of the suspension to pivot which helps minimize distortion. Both versions feature a polycarbonate shell designed to withstand signicant impact from above (meeting EN397 and EN12492 standards) at temperatures down to -30C (-22F). Both feature a slot design with clearance over the ears to accept muff-type ear protection (below) with or without a face shield. The comfortable suspension system is adjustable by a newly designed, single thumbwheel from 53 to 63 cm (2), and has an integrated chinstrap designed to decrease the risk of helmet loss in case of impact during a fall (breaking strength of more than 50daN, EN12492 mountaineering helmet standard). 16.4 oz. VERTEX VENT - Five ventilation holes on each side can be closed with two sliding shutters (3). Certication: ANSIZ89.1 - 2003typeIclassC and CE EN12492. VERTEX BEST - Solid shell meets ANSI electrical hazards standard. Certication: Z89.1- 2003 type I class E, and CE.

Kask Work and Work Viz Helmets


Whats ya gray matter worth?
There was a time when the only helmet available over 80 dollars was found on the football eld. Today theres hardly a bike shop around (okay, reputable bike shop) that stocks helmets under a hundred bucks. So why is it that those of us who not only wear a helmet daily but actually test its function on a regular basis seem surprised when a good and comfortable work helmet approaches that same mark? Well dont freak out now Plasma work helmets were designed for professional applications. They are lightweight, tough, and quite comfortable. Every helmet contains ten aluminum-grilled air vents that provide efcient cooling and ventilation while blocking debris entry. The rubberized wheel for headband size adjustment is easy to use even while wearing gloves. The high-density ABS plastic outer shell is designed to withstand signicant impact from above or from the side and meets the CE EN 397 and CE EN 12492 standards. The high-density polystyrene inner shell has ducts, allowing for natural air ow and heat cycling. Inner padding consists of two piecesa soft polyethelene headband and disc, both of which are removable and washable. The liner is made of anti-allergic, moisture-absorbent, odor-resistant fabric. The chin strap is designed with four fasten points in order to decrease the risk of helmet loss from impact in case of a fall (breaking strength more than 50 decanewtons, or 112.4 pounds; CE EN 12492 mountaineering helmet standard). Its safety release system allows for quick fastening and unfastening. Soft polyethylene side retractors regulate length of the straps. The red-colored ring on one of the straps is provided for fastening the helmet to a harness. The lamp-carrying clips, made from sturdy nylon 6.6, are compatible with most strap-type headlamps. WARNING - Plasma work helmets do not meet requirements of the ANSI Z89.1-2009 standards regarding electrical insulation. They are Type I, Class C helmets designed to provide crown (top) impact protection. These helmets are not intended to provide protection from lateral (side) impacts. Class C stands for conductive, and this class is not intended to provide protection from electrical conductors and is not tested for electrical resistance. Specications: Outer shell - ABS plastic Inner lining - fully washable Weight - 380g /0.84 lb (visor and ear muffs are not included) Note: Kask helmets available in Europe may not meet ANSI standards for impact or have muff brackets and other features found in helmets sold at SherrillTree.

With just a little rigging, our awesome Arbor-girl takes on the might of several men and is enabled to rst lift and then control this widow maker safely to the ground. Although shes utilizing an HMS-style carabiner as lowering lines friction managment, I would recommend something beeer for heavier stuff like a medium Portawrap. Please, exercise extreme caution whenever rigging within a tree. Make sure that what youre rigging from is ample enough in strength to withstand an accidental shock load. Never secure yourself in to the same crotch youre rigging from and always have ground personel within earshot to help if things dont go as planned.

Peltors top of the line forestry helmet long ago set the standard for comfort and safety during chainsaw operations. Several power equipment manufacturers adopted the LumberJack into their own safety line up, some stamping it with their own brand. The LumberJack sports a fold down screen that keeps sawdust from spackling the wearers face while allowing air to exchange freely. The shield also includes a patented visor sealing skirt to keep what dust is raining down, raining elsewhere. Chainsaw, chipper and stump grinder manufacturers require operators to wear separate and approved eye protection (glasses) so the face shield on LumberJack is only designed for minimal impact protection. The LumberJack ear muffs are rated to 24 decibels, providing wearers with extremely good sound buffering, and fold easily up out of the way when not desired. Heavy-duty yet lightweight, the LumberJack solution provides users excellent comfort and protection for a long list of tree care duties. With muffs and face shield. 22.4 ounces. 15773 - $49.95

Tautline vs Blakes Hitch

Tautline

Blakes

Both of these hitches are very popular among tree climbers as the adjustment point for the doubled rope technique (DdRT). These hitches allow climbers to adjust the circle of rope that keeps them secured between tree and harness. The Tautline has an irritating tendency to bind up, requiring the user to stop and loosen it for proper operation. This hitch also tends to unroll or feed line, which is why a stopper knot tied in the tail, is a must. Although the Blakes hitch shows little tendency to unroll, its still recommended that a stopper knot be tied. Once tied, dressed and set, the Blakes hitch remains stable throughout a climb, making it a clear improvement over the Tautline.

SherrillTree is proud to offer a full line of tree cabling and bracing materials to t a process with almost as many variables as trees have leaves! We dont share the belief that one solution ts every tree any more than we believe every tree needs this solution. Practitioners of cabling and bracing should have at least a fundamental understanding of engineering and a thorough understanding of trees before practicing this advanced, tree-altering skill. Bracing is performed almost exclusively on trees that have experienced failure or show signs of cracking. For open, vertical cracks in crotches, it is imperative that split portions be pulled together (above the split, using a come-along) before installing bracing hardware. Although the technique is not always aesthetically welcomed, its been found that a nal brace just above the crotch has substantial holding power. Braced crotches usually require taut cabling in the canopy above to minimize movement stress to the newly installed hardware below. In certain situations, experts may recommend a dynamic system be installed about two-thirds the distance between the crotch and limbs tip and that a static cable be installed Bracing just above the crotch midway between the dynamic cable and crotch. Guying is performed to lend support to vertically challenged trees. Perhaps the most common scenario follows the planting of young balled-and-burlapped (B&B) trees, but guying is also required for mature tree transplants. Another common situation is near newly cut foundations or sidewalks, where signicant root mass has been severed from one or more sides of previously wellestablished trees. Guying systems are recommended to be attached approximately halfway up the subject tree. Either non-invasive synthetic systems (without shock absorbers)

A lot has changed since the last publicly funded tree cabling research was performed in the United States (in 1935 by Robert Thompson of the National Park Service). We now have a better understanding of tree mechanics and access to signicantly improved materials for restraint. The information that follows introduces materials and then provides some guidance in selecting products that best meet your customers needs. or steel wire solutionsor a combination of the twocan be utilized, but if vandalism is a risk, it is suggested that the lowest 10 feet be steel. Cabling is performed to lend supplemental support to tree parts at elevated risk of failure. Not that any alteration or manmade design can make a living tree safe, but the process can mitigate hazards if practiced wisely. Cabling is not designed to hold trees together; rather, it limits excessive stress movement during ice or wind loading events that might start cracks that lead to greater failure. Systems can also be installed to limit potentially massive limb failures by shifting a limbs bending moment out toward the tip. It is recommended that cabling be installed two-thirds the distance above the targeted crotch and limbs tip to take advantage of leverage without having to anchor to small or weak branches. It is recommended that installers emphasize to customers that cabling is merely a supplement to its natural Static (steel) cabling stress defense. Many installers have customers sign a wavier for cabling work that outlines such limitations and details the ANSI A300 standard (see page 170) recommending annual inspection of this articial solution within their growing plant. (All cable and bracing systems and hardware offered by SherrillTree meet ANSI A300 standards.)

Dynamic vs. Static - When deciding between a Dynamic (shock-absorbing) and a Static (non-elastic) cabling system, the following generally accepted criteria are helpful Dynamic systems are recommended for Horizontal installations between limbs of young to middle-aged trees with sound crotches (no included growth) Species known for poor compartmentalization of wounds Trees with leggy structure determined to experience signicant exibility to wind and ice Hollow limbs where drilling is likely to accelerate decay or not provide sound anchorage for invasive hardware Static cables are recommended for Horizontal installations between limbs of young to middle-aged trees Species known for good compartmentalization of wounds Stout, tapered trees known to have limited movement in wind and ice Crotches with included bark Situations requiring minimal movement (above bracing) Vertical support of horizontal limbs

Cabling Costs

(not including tool investment) Commonly available utility-grade guy strand (steel wire) is the least expensive material you can offer customers for tree cabling. At 37 per foot its about half the cost of synthetic rope. Cobra generally costs an additional 15 per foot for cost of materials yet requires only half of the labor time to install. TreeSave is about the same as Cobra unless installing non-invasively, whereupon the slings raise material costs to just over double that of steel wire.

Dynamic Cabling candidate

Static Cabling candidate

These terms and descriptions are associated with materials we offer for this highly specialized craft.
Dynamic - This refers to cable materials with measurable elasticity, capable of absorbing shock loads associated with branches ailing in windy weather against manmade restraint. When used in conjunction with invasive anchors such as J-lags or eye bolts, dynamic cable increases the holding power by dampening load impact. Generally speaking, the leggier the tree (long, slowly tapering limbs), the more elastic the system can be. Dynamic systems include Cobra and TreeSave. Static - This refers to cabling materials that have little to no elasticity, making them ideal for taut installations where crotch-stressing limb movement must be minimized. Non-elastic, static cables deliver incredible shock load to attached mass when subjected to dynamic forces and therefore require higher tensile strengths than elastic solutions. This effect is the reason atbed trucks use load binders to keep cargo from shifting and the reason it is imperative that cables are installed taut to limit wind-induced momentum between limbs. Static systems include steel-wire and superhigh-strength ropes. Non-invasive - This refers to cabling termination techniques that do not require wounding or otherwise implanting hardware inside the living tissue of supported tree parts. Non-invasive systems include Cobra systems and TreeSave slings. Invasive - This refers to cabling and bracing techniques that require drilling to implant anchor hardware (usually steel) inside the plant. Invasive systems include threaded rod, J-lags, eye bolts, and RIGGUY wire stops.

Dynamic Non-Invasive Tree Cable


Made in Germany

Good timber does not grow with ease; the stronger the breeze, the stronger the trees.
J. Willard Marriott

Meets ANSI A300 standard, CE certied UV protected Shock-absorbing Non-girdling, self adjusting Simple to install, easy to learn Non-metallic, nonconductive, non-reective Lightweight (average system under 8 lbs.) Consistent tensile strength throughout, no weak link! Requires no damage to healthy wood

Tethering tree limbs together to withstand the forces of nature (wind and ice) is a complex issue. The fact that living trees build their own defense against stress by piling wood ber onto vulnerable areas leaves little argument that articially overstiffening such areas can cause growing trees to become lazy on the job. It was this simple fact that brought European tree experts, plant physiologists, and aeronautic engineers together in the early 90s to develop an improved tree cabling system that took every trees natural defenses into account. Although several reasons exist for cabling, two primary reasons were of greatest concern to arborists: repairing damage after failure and installing supplemental support to avoid failure. The latter issue is what inspired the development of dynamic cabling systems. The idea behind Cobra is to allow trees to continue their path of self-support while providing a supplemental solution in times of greatest stress because heightened stress is what causes most trees to crack or fail. And, indeed, trees are known to put up with a lot of stress; just ask an arborist whos witnessed a severe icing event. Sure, trees crumbleoften predictablybut most of us are amazed at the profound flexibility and strength of green wood. A tree whose branch tips are touching the ground one day can completely rebound within hours of melting temperatures. In essence, dynamic, low-tension support is designed to work with the trees natural and growing defenses, unlike certain static installations that overnight can turn a branchs tension wood into compression wood and vice versa. Today, with nearly a decade and a half behind the Cobra philosophy, it is clear that the solution is valid. Dynamically cabled trees from Hong Kong to Sydney are not falling and indeed have been recorded to carry trees through wind events that shattered static-cabled neighbors! Learn more about tree cabling by joining your regional chapter of the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA), or, for more information on Cobra, look SherrillTree.com up on the Web and search the word Cobra.

No cable

Static too tight

correct
Cobra is ideal as supplemental support for vigorous-growing codominant stems with sound crotches. Unlike invasive static solutions, Cobra reduces the karate effect associated with leggy branches opping against restraint in gusting winds.

correct

Dynamic systems must be installed without tension to provide shock absorbancy when needed most. ANSI A300 states that cabling be installed 2/3 the distance between the targeted crotch and limbs tip.

YEAR 1

YEAR 10

German engineers illustrate that providing elastic restraint before excessive movement can control even large stems.

The bending motion of trees in high wind proves that static wires are poorly compatible with exible green wood.

Non-invasive cabling systems cradle branches and stems to provide gentle, dynamic support during inclement weather.

As the tree grows in diameter, Cobra self-adjusts to avoid girdling while having no effect on the systems overall length. If the system comes under moderate tension, adjustment will take effect during wind oscillation.

North American Tree Monitoring Program


For all supplemental support, lightning protection, bracing and now guying installations! Well notify and remind the landowner on schedule!
NATMP is a program to inform property owners that their tree support or lightening protection system(s) require inspection. The program has minimal cost, provides long-term awareness of cabled trees and reminds the property owners of their responsibility to seek periodic inspections. When cabling, guying, or lightening protection is chosen for growing trees, a system of monitoring is recommended to watch for potential problems such as ingrowing branches, signs of stress transfer, broken or fatiguing hardware, etc. Failure to monitor such systems can lead to irreversible damage. NATMP works as follows: your installer lls out a form with detailed information about that particular job, has the customer sign it, and leaves the customer a copy. The form details the importance of monitoring tree cable installations and presents a reasonable fee ($10 US) required to keep them in our registry. If paid by them (or you) and returned to us, we will mail a letter to their address (Attn: Property Owner) on year 1, 3, 6, and 9 for monitoring and year, 12 for adjustment or possible relocation. At the twelfth year the program can be renewed, or cancelled, depending on the property owners choice (our le information is preserved). Your companys name and number will be included in the scheduled notications. Pad of 100 (duplicate) NATMP forms 27868 - $10

STEEL CABLING
Seven-strand, left-hand lay, corrosion-resistant, utility-grade steel cable has long been the staple of tree cabling in the US. A process rst practiced in the early 1900s, this method of cabling remains largely unchanged from it original format. Steel cabling is performed within tree canopies as a method of securing tree parts to one another as supplemental support to resist ice loads and wind forces, yet can provide no guarantee to save, hold together or especially reverse defective growing trends for the tree. Common-grade cable is malleable so that it can be spliced by hand (self-wrapped around a thimble) while extra-high-strength cable (EHS) is stronger but signicantly stiffer and cannot be hand-spliced. EHS is required when utilizing Rigguy wire stops. For all such connections, it is imperative that a heavy-duty thimble is used in all eye splices to reduce the chance of abrasion failure. For anchoring cable ends, we recommend eye bolts installed completely through the target branch with a washer under the nut. Some companies have abandoned use of J-lags all together due to their minimal holding power, especially in potentially hollow limbs. Although many arborists believe that static cabling systems are the answer to all structural aws requiring supplemental support, we would encourage practictioners to closely examine the longterm goals the customer anticipates for any cable installation and learn more about dynamic options. In other words, are customers informed that articial restraint requires periodic inspection (as outlined in the ANSI A300 standard)? This is why SherrillTree developed the NATMP program (see page 149), to notify property owners of due inspections.

Why use Rigguy wire stops?


Strong & secure Lightweight & compact Eliminates j-lags, eye bolts & thimbles Simple to install, easy to learn Allows cabling between very close stems Consistent tensile strength throughout Needs hole only 1/16 larger than cable
This unique cable termination simplifies the installation process for 7-strand EHS cables by eliminating the need for lags and bolts. Simply drill through the tree, feed the EHS cable through the hole, and terminate the wires end with the simple Rigguy wire-end stopper. Wire Stops

(for EHS Cable)


From the inventors of the Preformed Dead-End Grip comes this heavy-duty remake of a centuriesold technique for buttoning a wires end. The Wedge Grip uses tension and a mechanical wedge to grip 7-strand guy wire. The differences in the Wedge Grip and RIGGUY brand version are material and mechanics. The Wedge Grip is made of steel instead of aluminum, and, mechanically, the Wedge Grip user does not have to splay the wires apart to install but rather lays the unaltered wire in the wedges channel, then the wedge is pulled into a cone-shaped steel cylinder that is said to deliver 100% of the wires rated tensile strength. A screw-on cap initiates pressure to keep the wire from slipping between loads. Its a very nice system. The Wedge Grip consists of four parts: the outer cylinder and cap, plus two halves of the wedge. The wedges come in four different sizes depending on cable diameter, while the outer cylinder and cap come in one size only. At this time, parts cannot be purchased separately.

(Dynamic) TreeSave
TreeSave is produced by Samson Rope Manufacturing exclusively for SherrillTree customers in search of a hybrid dynamic system compatible with invasive or non-invasive projects. This product was conceived for the American market based on similar European systems but with a few unique twists: TreeSave has a built-in dampening core and can be easily spliced into J-lags and eye bolts. By replacing static steel cable with TreeSave, anchor hardware and the tree alike receive signicantly reduced shock-loading impact during wind events. Thats right, if youve experienced lags being ripped out of wood during storms, then you might recognize the value in introducing cushion into the system. TreeSave is available with non-invasive slings for those jobs with trees known for poor compartmentalization of wounds. Now thats innovation. TreeSave is easy to splice, requiring no heavy cable cutters, pliers, or even gloves. Simply remove a few feet of the shock-absorbing core material from the ropes end; feed the rope through your eye bolt or sling eye; and then splice the rope back into itself over a common thimble. For increased elasticity we offer an Add-On Damper with about 250 pounds of tension and a foot or so of extension. TreeSave cable comes in two materials: polyester and Spectra, and in two sizes: 10 and 13mm. Strength specications are TreeSave 10/5 is for trees measuring up to 15.5 inches at the targeted branch connection; TreeSave 13/11 for crotches up to 23.5 inches, and TreeSave 10/20 for crotches up to 30 inches.

Heavy-Duty Cinch Strap with 27-Foot Strap!

Before repairing a split crotch with steel rod(s), it may be necessary to close the wound to create a straight path for the drill bit. This can be done using eye slings and a come-along device above the wounded area. Finally, drill holes in accordance with ANSI A300 2006 33.7 guidelines before installing bracing rod(s). Most recommend starting from the bottom and working upwards to effectively zip the ssure closed.

Pro-grade Zipline Products from SherrillTree


Looking for an additional income stream?
Its been my observation that very few zipline installations in living trees are installed with tree health or even cable longevity in mind. Several installations Ive witnessed subject the tree to near immediate decline and large riders to potential disaster with leading mistakes being external wrapping methods and undersized cable or mismatched hardware. I believe that seasoned arborists with cabling experience based on tree health are uniquely qualied to properly assess, and then install premium-grade systems in living trees. If tree cabling is one of your specialties then perhaps you too are qualied to assess and install a zipline system that serves both trees and customers! The most common error performed by amateur zipline installers is wrapping cable directly around growing trees. Even with vertically positioned boards the trees vascular system can be greatly restricted, and in most cases the cable is fastened in a manner that allows zero expansion growth. We only recommend through-bolting of this highly static cable system that, in most cases, will be installed low to mid stem and under signicant tension anyway, greatly reducing the likelihood of windinduced hardware abrasion. Another issue commonly sited is inadequate cable and/or hardware strength. SherrillTree recommends only premium-grade, high-strength products to withstand the rigors of abuse and inclement weather. Accompanying this page of premium products are a few illustrations and details that we consider paramount to a stable and tree-friendly zipline installation.

Zipline Things To Know


SYSTEM STRENGTH: Calculating strength requirements of componentry needed for zip line installation can be quite involved. Many factors inuence reactive forces placed on the system including, but not limited to; span distance, cable angle, cable sag, cable elasticity, pole height, pole ex, rider weight and so on. In one calculation for example, conrmed against real life results, it was determined that 200 feet of cable (pulled tight between rigid anchors) loaded with 200 pounds weight produced 15kN of force (3,400 pounds) at either end. We beleive it prudent to utilize a minimum 3/8-inch cable for spans exceeding 100 feet. SAFE STOPPING: Zipline installations should end with a mechanical braking device made up of an elastically anchored striking block, tire (8-15) or similar method that arrests rider slowly a safe distance short of secondary cable termination. SYSTEM AGE AND WEAR: It is generally accepted that zipline systems have a lifespan of between 10 and 15 years. Stainless materials should be used in close proximity to coastal (salt) waters. Thimbles should always be used in cable ends to avoid chafng and abrasion brought about through dynamic activity. WARNINGS: Signs should be posted warning that adolescent use should be supervised by an adult and long hair should be secured from entanglement; cable, hardware and tree condition should be inspected annually; landing zones should be well maintained and safe. Striking Block

GIRDLING: Do not wrap non-adjusting cables or lines directly around trees for zipline use. Through bolts or other injuries to the tree should be minimal and calculated based on compartmentalization characteristics of the species. INCLINE: Generally speaking, ziplines should be installed with only 4-6 degrees of fall and absolutely no more than 12 degrees.

0 5 10 13 Tension created on cable end hardware increases dramatically when load is applied midline. Live trees should be evaluated anually for decline or internal decay and cabling hardware for abrasion or stress damage. Too at isnt bad for short runs or ground level installations where riders can run-start. Too steep (exceeding 12 degrees) is hazardous and unacceptable for zipline installations even with cushioned stop.

Galvanized Aircraft Cable and termination products


Tension is important to a good zipline installation. Without adequate tension the cable is likely to experience sag leading to a poor ride experience and premature cable wear. In most cases a zipline installation will require no more than one turnbuckle if a comealong and Chicago grip are used during installation. 1. 7/19 Galvanized Aircraft Cable (strength in lbs) 5/16 X 250 (9800) wt 43 lbs 5/16 X 500 wt 86.5 lbs 3/8 X 500 wt 121.5 lbs Cable clamps for 3/8 Thimbles for 3/8 33053 - $115 33069 - $229 33070 - $294 33057 - $1.00 33058 - $1.50 15023 - 45 15022 - 65

Although SherrillTree is a strong advocate of non-invasive supplemental support cabling systems in tree crown, we fall rmly on the side of invasive installation for this low-positioned static procedure.

Our SPRAY RIG EXPERT Can help you decide what SetUp Will BE best for you
Here are some things you need to consider:

What type of work will you be doing? - A spray rig can be used for tree spraying, root

feeding or lawns. The type of work you plan to use it for affects the size tank you need, as well as the engine and pump size. The smaller engines are ne for root feeding and lawn work, but can not generate enough power to spray hardly more than 20-25 ft. Engines available in 5.5, 8, 13, 18, 20, or 24 HP. Pumps available in 10, 15, 20, 35, and 40 GPM.

2 4

Your hose length and gun type also reect the type of work youll be doing. Hoses are available in 3/8 , 1/2 and 3/4 diameters, at 150 and 300 lengths. There is a range of spray guns available for spraying trees, lawns, or root feeding.

BELLS AND WHISTLES

What siZe/capacity truck or trailer will you use to haul your spray rig around? - One gallon of

water weighs little over 8 lbs., so if youve got your 200 gallon tank lled, youre looking at around 1,660 lbs, not including the weight of the spray rig itself. SherrillTree Spray Rigs are constructed of light weight aluminum to reduce your vehicle requirements. However, if you need a complete truck/spray rig combination we sell those too. Tanks are available in 100, 200 and 500 gallon capacities.

There are a number of features available that go beyond the basic spray rig. Adding an electric hose reel will save you time and energy compared to a manual crank reel. Roller guides on the reel guide the hose onto the reel in a neat and clean manner. Protect your rig from the elements with an all-aluminum truck body featuring three 72 roll-up door.

Arbor Green PRO


Arbor Green PRO from Davey is the most signicant advancement in tree fertilization since the original Arbor Green was patented in 1978. Composed of the highest-quality nutrients, including synthesized organic nitrogen fortied with polyamino acids, this fertilizer is formulated in just the right ratio to maximize the nutrients effects. A complete fertilizer, Arbor Green PRO 30-10-7 contains high-quality nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium formulated from ureaform and monopotassium phosphate, plus polyamino acid. Arbor Green PRO releases these nutrients, including synthesized organic nitrogen fortied with polyamino acids throughout the growing season. A slower, controlled release rate leads to uniform growth, a lower risk of leaching and greater efciency of nutrient absorption. The technology of this fertilizer is intended to mimic the natural availability of nutrients in the forest environment. The formulas low salt index allows the most sensitive trees, such as those that are drought stressed, or recently transplanted, to be fertilized. Properly selected and maintained landscape plants add value to real estate, lower utility bills and help offset carbon emissions.

A balanced fertilization program is one of the most important cultural practices for improving the health and appearance of landscape trees and ornamentals. Most insect, disease, and physical stress are symptoms of bigger problems beneath the soil. Many landscape areas have poor soil that cannot maintain good, healthy growth. Such problems can be pH related, macro or micronutrient deciencies, low organic matter, or the result of toxins in the soil. The list grows as still more is learned about the nutrient requirements of healthy trees. In the forest, the recycling of nutrients Two 2.5 gallon containers occurs naturally when leaves and other organic materials decompose. The problems occur on landscapes where the natural cycle is disrupted. Most trees and shrubs on a landscape property have to compete for nutrients with grasses and other ground covers. Without new organic matter being introduced, the soil is soon depleted. With a balanced fertilizer program, one can only improve the health and appearance of these plants, but also reduce the amount of damage caused by pests and physical stress.

Biobarrier Root Control System


Im sure weve all seen a sidewalk that has had portions of it cracked and pushed up due to the growth of roots from a nearby tree. Similar effects happen to all sorts of other structures, because there is nothing in place to prevent the roots from causing damage. This is where Biobarrier comes in. Biobarrier is an advanced, long-term root control system that incorporates time-release nodules. When strategically placed in the soil, it prevents structural damage from root encroachment, without causing damage to the roots or tree. Effective life of Biobarrier is 15 years (minimum) or more depending on the location. Though the ideal times to install Biobarrier are when a tree is rst planted or when backlling, Biobarrier can still be easily installed for older trees. Simply dig a small trench along the structure to be protected and slip the fabric vertically into the opening. Cover, tamp, and rake over. Thats really about all there is to it. Plus, the exibility of the fabric allows you to shape and form the root control system to virtually any conguration. Biobarrier is an excellent root control system for many landscaping situations. Examples include swimming pools, gardens, cemeteries, tennis courts, and building foundations. Biobarrier is sold by the roll. Root control is another great service that you can offer your customers!

Deep Root Tree Root Barrier


Another popular method of root control is Deep Root Barriers. They are scientifically designed to prevent tree roots from damaging surrounding hardscapes and landscapes. The barrier is used for either surround or linear applications with trees that will reach as much as 18" to 24" (depending on which size barrier you use) trunk caliper at maturity. Commonly used in conjunction with curb and gutter, parkways and other street tree applications, the two foot long panels come either 18" or 24" high and feature a new integrated zipper joining system that provides for instant assembly, without the use of a joiner strip. The barrier also has a 90 rib to direct roots down and out allowing for full root growth. Anti-lift ground locks prevent the barriers from being lifted by root growth. 26 panels of 18" X 24" 20 panels of 24" X 24" 22059 - $199 22067 - $181

Tree Climbers Knot Book by Dirk Lingens


Knots have a long history. In the past they were an integral part of daily life, indispensable for seamen, craftsmen, and farmers. Over recent centuries though, the need to utilize ropes and knots has been replaced by prefabricated means. Knots have, however, experienced a small renaissance among climbers who still use rope. Above all, friction knots have been refound, reinvented, and optimized by tree climbers for peak performance. Dirk Lingens, a German arborist and self-confessed knot junkie, has collected and recorded knots commonly used in the arboricultural industry. There are also a few exotic and uncommon knots, and some are published here for the rst time. The book is useful not just for arborists but for anyone with an interest in knots. 32337 - $28
