Why Tree Climbing Gear Matters
Tree climbing gear is not just an accessory; it's a critical element of your climbing experience. As you ascend higher into the trees, the risk of falling increases. Our climbing equipment, including adjustable chest harnesses, plays a pivotal role in ensuring your safety. It provides the necessary support to navigate the tree while safeguarding you from potential harm. Whether you're a recreational climber or a professional arborist, having the right gear is essential for a secure ascent.

Essential Tree Climbing Equipment
For those new to tree climbing or starting tree work, there are seven fundamental pieces of gear that you'll require to get started:
Tree Climbing Harnesses
These specialized harnesses are designed explicitly for tree climbing, providing features like side D-rings and work positioning capabilities.
Fliplines or Lanyards
Fliplines and lanyards attach to your harness and help secure you in position, offering a secondary attachment point while performing tasks in the tree.
Flipline or Lanyard Adjuster
These devices allow you to adjust tension in your flipline or lanyard, ensuring a secure fit and optimal positioning.
Arborists need specialized climbing ropes with low stretch and pliability to accommodate knot techniques effectively. These ropes cannot be substituted with rock climbing or caving ropes.
Prusik or Friction Hitch
A short piece of specialist rope used to adjust your position on the climbing rope while resisting heat generated by friction.
Carabiners come in various types and materials, with at least two, but preferably four, being recommended in your climbing kit.
Spurs or Spikes
Used exclusively for tree removal, these tools allow you to ascend the tree when natural footholds are scarce, but they should be used with caution to avoid harming the tree's health.

Safety should always be your top priority when assembling your tree climbing kit. High-quality equipment is your lifeline in the tree. Sherrilltree ensures that you can trust the gear you purchase, whether for tree work or recreational climbing, at prices that won't break the bank.
