Just getting started with tree climbing?
If you are new to tree climbing, it would be helpful to know which equipment you need to buy first. There is no sense in purchasing extra equipment that looks good but is unnecessary. Not at first, anyway. With that in mind, first things first: get a good climbing line and rigging rope. Now please keep in mind that they are not the same and that you will need both. One is for actually supporting you as you ascend the trees and the other is for safely pulling down limbs. Look for ropes that will hold plenty of weight and are from name brand suppliers.
You will also need:
A safety lanyard
Throw weight and throw line
Of course, eventually, you will want more equipment to keep up with your increasing skill level. This might include various pulleys that can make your trips smoother and portawraps than can serve to reduce friction along the way.
Signs of a reputable supplier
How can you be sure you are dealing with the right company when you are ordering tree climbing supplies online? We all know there are companies online just waiting to take advantage of you by selling you subpar products. Knowing what to look for can reduce the chances of you running into difficulties with your purchases.
First of all, look for a company that offers name brand tree climbing supplies. A company that truly knows what you are doing, truly values quality, and truly values safety will not carry products from brands you do not recognize as being reputable. Remember, you are placing your life in the hands of your tree climbing equipment, so do not cut corners.
You also want to make sure you are purchasing equipment from a company who offers it at a fair price. Some companies, for instance, will run back to school sales and offer up to ten percent off purchases. It may not sound like much, but if you are spending, say 500 dollars, that is 50 dollars off. Not bad, right? So do a bit of price comparison shopping and save a bit of money. There is no sense in paying more than you have to.
Finally, search for a company owned by a certified arborist. Someone who knows the business because they are an actual arborist. Why? You can be sure that this experienced arborist will offer truly useful supplies as they understand what it is really like to use it.
