When hiking or climbing along rough terrains, it is important to wear the proper gear and apparel for maximum comfort and safety. For example, arbor specialists need to navigate tall trees during maintenance, trimming and other services. There are special boots available for such arbor professionals that need to get maximum traction along the surface of tree trunks and branches. The soles of logging boots for arborists have special thick tread patterns that provide maximum friction and slip resistance. Boots for such workers are also relatively heavy in order to settle the feet down on any surface.
Arborists may also have to bring along special equipment for climbing and moving in between trees. For example, lines and rope are used to move around between branches at heights of dozens of feet. Arbor specialists may have to install metallic rings and other anchors that hold a system of pulleys and ropes that are used for movement. Body harnesses secure arbor specialists that need to get to the top of tall trees that may be over 100 feet in height. The body harnesses may be connected to steel cables that are ultra strong and can support hundreds of pounds. Pouches and other storage bags can be attached to the body harness of an arborist that needs to manually do something on tree branches and trunks. Hammers, saws and drills are some common tools that may be attached to a belt that’s part of a body harness used for climbing tasks on trees.
