For anyone who wants to climb — it’s easy if you have good training! Your teacher is Peter “Treeman” Jenkins, the “father” of recreational tree climbing and an ISA-certified arborist and former production climber. Here Treeman shares his experience as a tree-climbing teacher and his knowledge of trees to show how you, too, can get high in the treetops using doubled-rope technique. Contains detailed chapters about safety, tree selection and risk assessment in trees, gear, setting ropes and knot tying, climbing technique, and forest ethics. Run time: 1 hour 45 min.
Tree workers: This DVD is also appropriate for you. The climbing system used by recreational climbers is the same system used by climbing arborists in day-to-day tree care.
New climbers: Be sure to check out TCI's tree climbing kit (at right) sold by WesSpur Tree Equipment. It includes everything you need (and nothing you don't need!) in high-quality gear, at a very good price, for climbers who are buying equipment for the first time. Everything in the kit is shown in our DVD "gear" chapter.
Shipping: This product always ships via First Class Mail and will arrive in two or three days. Please do not select "Priority Mail" shipping, as it adds extra shipping cost without added service.
TCI's packaging for this DVD has changed, but it is the same product, with an updated insert.
