For recreational climbers: The Tree Climber's Companion--2nd edition by Jeff Jepson
For tree workers: All 4 Jepson books (package price)
Book: The Art and Science of Practical Rigging

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. In this video, Treeman shows how you, too, can get high in the treetops using doubled-rope technique (now known as the moving rope system [MRS]). 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. Available in hard copy or via download.

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.

If you are choosing the download/stream version, you will see a shipping charge at the beginning of the purchase process. This charge will be cancelled during check out.

Shipping the "hard" copy: This product  ships via First Class Mail.

New climbers: Be sure to take a look at TCI's tree climbing kit and entry-level tree worker kit sold by WesSpur and American Arborist Supplies. Both kits were designed by us to include everything you need (and nothing you don't need!) in high-quality gear at a very good price (discounted with a code available to new members of TCI) for climbers who are buying equipment for the first time.
