• secure a suitable rope climbing system by using correct knots at a location on the tree which can withstand the forces of a fall
  • wear climbing spikes that are maintained as per manufacturer’s recommendations
  • climbing spikes can damage tree tissues which can result in infection and decay and can create future hazards
  • always maintain two points of attachments to the tree, particularly while cutting or moving on a dead tree eg use a flip line and a climbing rope
