   Tree Climbing  Before climbing a tree, it is imperative that you closely examine your tree for dead hanging branches and other potential hazards!
   Tree Climbing Knots   Knowing the uses for a termination knot or a load-securing knot is essential for a safer workflow and getting the work done.
SherrillTree’s website and catalog are a resource for education about the tree care industry. Knowing the uses for a termination knot or a load-securing knot is essential for a safer workflow and getting the work done. And as important as tree climbing knots and knot tying are to our industry, it should also be pointed out that in many cases a spliced rope termination is the best solution. Spliced rope termination is up to 50% stronger than knots and easily attaches and detaches from climbing and rigging systems. Click here to learn more about tree climbing knots.
