The Tree Climbers’ Guide was written specifically from the tree climbers’ perspective to learn safe climbing and aerial tree work principles. It is a basic text for tree climbers as well as a study guide for the ISA Certified Tree Worker Climber Specialist® and Aerial Lift Specialist® exams. Each chapter includes a list of key terms and concludes with a workbook section.
Fully illustrated chapters include: Tree Health and Sciences, Safety, Ropes and Knots, Climbing, Pruning, Rigging, Removal, and Cabling. The guide also contains appendices with answers to the workbook questions, a glossary, and resources listed for further reference. (©2005, softcover, 172 pp., glossary, appendices, index)
